Basically, June 11-13 during store hours, he may take off early Sat. at 6p. then he will be back the next Friday and Sat. June 19-20 for all day during store hours. I'm sure there will be a lunch break in there at some point so watch the Greg Olsen Art website "Event" page.

New Road Shows

Hi, I thought that I would pass this info on to y'all.

In an effort to reach more people and introduce Greg Olsen's art to different areas of the country, Greg Olsen Art Publishing has been working with Sam's Club to host special signing events and road shows featuring selected works from Greg Olsen. The first of these signing events at a Sam's Club will take Olsen back to his roots in Southeast Idaho. This special event will be at the Idaho Falls, Idaho Sam's Club from June 11 - 21, 2009. This store location is at 700 E 17th St, Idaho Falls, Idaho. Greg Olsen Art Publishing hopes that the "home town" appeal will create more awareness and new interest in Greg's ever advancing work. Greg will be on hand to sign and personalize his artwork. A schedule of signing times will be posted on the "Events" page the website in a few days. For additional information call Greg Olsen Art Publishing at 208-888-2585. As more special events are scheduled they will be posted on the website and emailed to those on GOA mailing list.

Greg should be bringing some new painting to work on at this event.

Greg Olsen & Bebo Norman Music Video

Did you see the new music video from Greg Olsen and Bebo Norman that they put together.  It is really cool.

Sneak Peak

Here is a sneak peak of Greg's newest painting as the special event in West Valley ended.  As of yet he has not titled it.  Any ideas?  As Greg describes it, the left darker and rocky side represents the difficult times, like today.  With Christ we look forward to something brighter.  There is a bright heavenly or millennial city off to the right horizon.  A couple of doves are in flight representing "peace" and "hope".  Usually when Greg releases his new artwork he comes out with a wonderful poem or saying that helps explain the feeling or spirit of the painting.  I can't wait!

A Little Coaching

While Greg was painting at the last signing event several young people indicated (or their parents did) that they were budding artists and they really enjoyed his work.  To the surprise and treat of everyone, he had several youth help him out on this new painting.  This photo is of a young lady named Randanie who helped with some detail work with the coaching of Mr. Olsen.  What a delight.

Here are a couple more pictures from Greg's last special event and signing.  Now you can see a little more of just what this painting is going to look like.  It is very inspiring for todays troubled times.

West Valley, Utah

Hi!  Greg spent almost 10 days at a signing event in West Valley City, Utah.  The show and signing event was at the local Costco, to the delight of many Costco members that walked into the store to find Greg Olsen meeting, greeting and uplifting folks as they entered the store.  Many were awed by the excitement of getting to watch a master work on his newest painting there in front of them.

This newest painting is still untitled, but Greg says that it is not uncommon to have a finished product before he decides upon a proper title.  Even though the painting process appears to slow down because of the amount of detail that Greg puts into his work, it is cool to watch the shapes and images sharpen and come into focus.   For an added display later on, Greg brought in the Santa Clause painting that he had worked on earlier in the year.  the common question was, when will the prints be available.  Late summer would be a good guess.

Lapse of Info

Hi everyone.  Sorry for the lapse in info about what is going on.  I have been on the road with Greg and have a lot of good info that I'll be sharing.  Computer access was limited so I wasn't able to post anything.  

Greg brought the painting that he had been working on last month to the West Valley City, UT Costco road show and signing event to the astonishment of fans.  He didn't finish it but got close.  He even enlisted a little help - details and photos to come.
