Greg Caldwell: Neighborhood

Jan 25, 2019 – Mar 16, 2019

Greg Caldwell, Neighborhood

What if the word Neighborhood was perceived as a title or state of being, like Sainthood, Parenthood, or Knighthood?

In Neighborhood, artist Greg Caldwell ponders the connotation of the term. His paintings portray people as neighbors, being neighborly, or being happy and at peace. The theme also encompasses kindness, friendship and relationships of safety, security, comfort, and trust among neighbors.  As a counterpoint to Shady Acres, Caldwell conveys a warm ideal of suburbia, where neighbors are at ease, greeting each other with a friendly wave to say “hello.”
