Meet the library artists: Dale Gregg

In this new exclusive series, we will be featuring a Q&A with the artists who have their work on display in the Mt. Lebanon Public Library each month. The library has galleries in the upper and lower hallways, along with display cases that are best for smaller works. The upper gallery is booked through March 2025. Interested in displaying your work? Check out the guidelines here!

Name: Dale Gregg

Age: 74

Location: I lived in Mt Lebanon for over 20 years but downsized to the Nevilleside carriage home community in Collier Township in 2007.

Where/when can your art be found in the Mt. Lebanon Public Library? My paintings will be on display by the lower library entrance (off Castle Shannon Blvd) 

Art form: Watercolor

How did you get into this? I majored in studio art in college, pursued a masters degree in art education and taught briefly in the Pittsburgh Public schools. After leaving teaching, I became an interior decorator and then an attorney.

I am currently a member of the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society and on the board of South Arts.

Tell us about your art. Is there a meaning behind it? What emotions do you intend to invoke? Most of my work is an exploitation of form and color in flowers and portraits.

You were a longtime Mt. Lebanon resident. What does it means to present in your old community? I loved living in Mt Lebanon and, since the library is such a special place, I feel honored to display my work there.

Where else can your work be found? My work is exhibited through South Arts at The Galleria.
