Sean Greene‘s painting is driven by freedom, feeling, and, above all, exhilarating color. That’s the case whether he’s painting in his toothbrush-factory art studio, on the walls at Facebook’s office, or propped up recovering from a life-altering skateboarding accident. He paints, and he deals with it.

Sean’s work is on exhibit at the Herter Gallery at UMass Amherst through December 14, in a group show at Geoffrey Young Gallery in Great Barrington through December 19, and in the Hive small works show at the Mingo Gallery in Beverly through January 30.
