Oyster Bay resident Gregory L. Reid’s art exhibit Echoes: Voices from the Mystics is on view at Oyster Bay Historical Society’s Angela Koenig Center, 20 Summit St.
Primarily self-taught from a young age, Reid studied art briefly in New York City only to find the classroom atmosphere ‘distracting.’ Reid describes his need to paint as a way to release the energy discovered when seeking truth and inspiration from the natural world and the people he encounters.
Reid’s work suggests the influence of Picasso, Chagall, de Kooning and other abstract expressionists while incorporating ethnic and spiritual themes.
