Arts Gallery in The Capitol Arts Gallery
The Kinne Design Studio is located at 818 Quincy Junction road. The techniques and materials used in Greg's artwork are a result of years of experimentation, research, and practice. He works from sketches, or the inspiration of the moment. The techniques are either adapted from other art techniques or ones that he has developed.
The life of the artwork requires the vision of the client. When the client sees the artwork as part of their space, the process is complete.
The West End Theatre, at 541 Main Street in Quincy, is a traditional black box theatre that provides an intimate space for community performances.
