From April to September, 2000, Gregg Simpson had three solo exhibitions in Europe, two in Italy and one in France. While Simpson has shown throughout Europe in over twenty group exhibitions since 1973, these solo exhibitions signal an exciting new direction in his career.

 Simpson's paintings and pastels from 1994-1999 formed his first major exhibition in Europe, entitled  A New Arcadia,  on view May 1st-May 32st, 2000 in the keep of the famous Fortezza di Montalcino, a castle built in 1361 and the main attraction of the Tuscan town of Montalcino.

The artist would like to acknowledge the assistance given to these projects by the
Government of Canada's Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade

      Studio 10 in Vercelli, Italy (near Milan)
     View the exhibition

        Entitled Phantoms of Light, Simpsonís first European solo exhibition consisted of digital art,
        video and a selection of paintings and pastels. The paintings and pastels in the exhibition are
        taken from the series of works as the Fortezza  di Montalcino exhibition (below).

        Simpsonís work has already been featured in a number of group exhibitions and publications
        sponsored by Studio 10 in Vercelli, organized by Gian Pierro Prassi. Although the exhibition
        ended in April, the digital works from the exhibition can be seen on-line. Pictures of the
        installation and the opening night will soon be added to this site.

        At the beginning of his career, Simpson was inspired by the work of pioneer surrealist Max Ernst.
    Seillans is the village where Max Ernst and his wife, artist Dorothea Tanning, spent the last decade
        of Ernst's life. The opportunity to exhibit next to the Ernst-Tanning archive in the Espace
        Waldberg, was especially significant for the artist.
