“Backstage” by R. Gregory Summers



14 x 18 in.


“We go outdoors to enjoy the land, or stay inside to avoid it. It is I, an outdoor artist that brings the outside in.”

Born in the Flint Hills, Gregory Summers began his professional career at Hallmark Cards Inc. A Master Engraver, he now paints primarily “En Plein Air” across the globe with a limited pallet of only 4 colors. Former Vice President of the Greater Kansas City Artists Association, co-founder of the Missouri Valley Impressionist Society, and the Brush Creek Art Walk painting competition in Kansas City, Missouri.

“I am inspired by creation, and driven by the experience. I paint the land that I claim to be a part of. It is not to replicate the scene before me, more to bring back a piece of what took me there in the first place.”
