Retrospective of Work by Greg Thatcher Is Now Open at Unity Gallery

The "Greg Thatcher Retrospective 1979-2006" is now open at the Unity Gallery in the Library of Maharishi Univerisyt of Management. The exhibitcontinues through May 27.

The art work in the exhibit spans almost 30 years and includes a variety of media, but the goal of the work has remained the same. Mr. Thatcher says, "I try to create a spacial structure and rhythm that encourages the viewer to move through the recognizable into the abstract essence of everything."

Works in the exhibit range from early abstract painting and prints to hand-made paper pieces, drawings, and mixed media. The majority of work in the show relates to the landscape in its many forms including his current yew tree series.

For those wanting to learn more about the artist's work, Mr. Thatcher will take visitors on a walk though his exhibit on Saturday, May 13, at 1:00 p.m.

There will be a closing celebration in the gallery on Saturday, May 27, at 1:00 p.m.

Mr. Thatcher has exhibited his work in the United States and abroad. His artis also represented in many private collections.
