Circles
GALLERY NEWS
It is with absolute pleasure that we announce the opening of local artist Galen Brown’s solo exhibition titled OCD,…………………..and finally some access to his work!

For appointments to view the new show and more information please contact Frances@melhopgallery.com

Brown was born in Reno in 1959 and raised in both Reno and at King’s Beach, Lake Tahoe. He was a dedicated junior ski racer on the Reno Falcons ski team and later the Lake Tahoe Ski Club, and a quiet loner in school who lacked direction until a ski accident rendered him immobile for six months. Brown began taking classes at the San Francisco Art Institute and wound up staying for the duration of his formal art education. He studied in China and New York, earning a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts in 1988 and a master’s degree in 1990. Brown has exhibited his work in many group exhibitions at galleries and non-profit art spaces, but given his slow and methodical working style, he resisted selling his work to collectors, preferring to keep his bodies of work together….

Until now……
