“It Ain’t Easy Bein’ Green,”
from local artist Joey Brock.
brock studio gallery will introduce its latest mixed media collection, “It Ain’t Easy Bein’ Green,”
from local artist Joey Brock.

The event, held in conjunction with neighboring Bettinger Studio’s fine art photography show,
will also showcase fine art photography entitled “A Body of Work” by Denise Tarango and
sculpture by Zad Roumaya.

“It Ain’t Easy Bein’ Green” is Brock’s second collection since the opening of brock studio gallery
in early 2010 and advances his unique style of communicating the clash between urban and
natural environments. Brock’s 13-piece series combines acrylic paint, conté crayon, pencil
and paper on clayboard and canvas with found media such as rusty drill bits, sandpaper,
stone, twine and glass for powerful statements about environmental corruption.

Inspired by the timeless song performed by Kermit the Frog in Sesame Street’s first season
on TV, “Bein’ Green” is Brock’s creative expression of the complexities of being green. The
works explore the power of one singular act to change a landscape in both negative and positive

“I find an interesting association with this song and how its lyrics mimic
the human struggle to be green today,” said Brock.  “The dichotomy
of green’s power to big business, money versus environment, truly
inspired this collection.”
