Laurence has been painting full-time for the last 23 years. He was raised in Newton, Massachusetts and presently lives in Provincetown. As many artists before him, he is captivated by the light and how the color plays out on the surface of the canvas. He enjoys working en plein-air as well as in the studio. The direct observation of plein-air painting, and the looser expression of his studio work complement one another.
“After years of working at my craft, I am finally comfortable in the relationship between what I observe and what I feel. “
– Laurence Young

GREGG IRBY GALLERY
Gregg Irby Gallery in Atlanta is the contemporary fine art destination for discovering up & coming, regionally, and nationally acclaimed painters. Located on Atlanta’s Westside, Gregg Irby Gallery is not your typical art gallery. With 30 artists represented, more than 300 paintings and works on paper are hanging in the airy 3,400 square foot space with industrial high ceilings, vintage French lights and doors, and epoxy floors. Our team welcomes visitors as guests, rather than clients, encouraging them to casually explore at their own pace. The gallery’s passion and motivation is to launch truly talented and hardworking artists and to present established artists as they should be experienced.
In the 20 years of curating the works of artists, Gregg Irby Gallery has proven to be the source for discovering paintings and works on paper that will resonate for years to come.
