CCBC Gallery Featured Artist: Lou Kregel
On view Friday, June 23 through Sunday, July 9
Chances are, you’ve seen Lou Kregel’s work around Athens countless times, though you may not have known it was hers: the painted “T” pattern behind the counter at Creature Comforts’ neighbor Ted’s Most Best, the many dozens of chrysanthemum murals dotting the neighborhoods of Athens, and the 2016 AthFest & AthHalf designs are all Kregel’s handiwork.
Kregel has lived in Athens working as a painter and designer since 1992. Over the years, Kregel has become best known for her color-driven chrysanthemum murals, many of which have been recreated for this custom paper and paste installation at Creature Comforts. Her installation will be on view for a short two week run in the CCBC Gallery to celebrate AthFest 2017 (Friday, June 23–Sunday, June 25). Over the last year, Kregel has focused on developing her online shop, full of custom painted and printed home-goods from ceramic dishes to tea towels.
