Greg Mort at Stamford Museum & Nature Center

February 16, 2013 – May 27, 2013

Greg Mort, a Maryland artist and amateur astronomist, has his eyes firmly in the sky in this selection of original artworks. With his crisp hand, impeccable technique, and lyrical view of the universe, Mort conveys his respect for and love of nature in his art, which can be found at the White House, the Smithsonian Institution, and in the collection of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (nasa).

A self-taught artist, Mort developed his artistic vision while camping and exploring the coastline and the woodlands of the Northeast. His ability to capture both the vast grandeur of space and the minute details of the human Earth captivates the viewer and compels a closer inspection.

His canvases reveal his fascination with the heavens, his keen observations of the Earth within the solar system, and reflect the continued quest for understanding that has motivated humans to look skyward for millennia. The universal appeal of his images has been recognized by the U.S. Department of State’s ART in Embassies program. His works speak to the cultural commonalities and shared experiences of people beyond borders and across continents.
