Gregg Chadwick creates his artwork in an old airplane hangar in Santa Monica, California. The recurring sound of airplane take-offs and landings from the active airport runway outside his studio reminds him of his own history of travel.

Chadwick has participated in over one hundred group exhibitions including the L Ross Gallery (Memphis, Tenn), the Andrea Schwartz Gallery (San Francisco), the LOOK Gallery (Los Angeles), the Arena 1 Gallery (Santa Monica), the di Rosa Preserve Gallery (Napa) and the Arts Club of Washington (Washington DC).
