Born in Greensboro in 1918 but raised in Charlotte, Jefferson Eugene Grigsby, Jr. was a shining example of a modern day renaissance man. He was an artist, a teacher, a published writer, a lecturer and a band leader. This retrospective of 30 works offers a glimpse into one aspect of Grigsby’s creative genius – his paintings – and traces them back to their origins. It becomes apparent that as his understanding of the world evolved, Grigsby moved from simply depicting his surroundings to attempting to influence them.
