Art and Wine Auction-Greg Congleton
Greg was raised on a cattle ranch in Paulina, OR in a family of artists and engineers. He always loved to draw and build things. Greg says “That’s my view of sculpture – creating lines of definition and motion in 3D. My artwork is a natural progression of some fundamental tenants of my previous career in home building. The best projects have both creative architecture and sound engineering. In the sculptural work I do those attributes manifest themselves as creativity coupled with craftsmanship. One without the other is not as effective. Raw, undisciplined creativity by itself rarely produces excellence – yet tedious craftsmanship without the spark of ingenuity is boring to me.”
Greg’s piece, Heavy Laden, was modeled after Dave Hatfield, owner of 3456 Café at the airport in Redmond.
