Crookston native, writer and artist, Gregory Montreuil, currently has a selection of more than 40 black and white oil abstracts on exhibition at the Rourke Art Gallery Museum in Moorhead. The installation will be in place through June 23, 2013.

Montreuil, the son of Alan and Dolores Montreuil, was born in Crookston and attended Crookston Public Schools, where his love of art was nurtured, influencing his future career choice. After high school, Montreuil received a B.S. degree from Minnesota State University, Moorhead, where he studied painting under Professor Timothy Ray.

Montreuil, who splits his time between homes in New York City and Marseille, France, is known for his published criticism and arts journalism. His writings are regularly featured in "Cover", "The New Art Examiner", "Contemporary", "Flash Art", "The Villager" and "Art Papers." His artwork has been shown extensively throughout Europe and in New York.

Pieces by Mountreuil are part of many public and private collections, including The National Gallery in Washington, D.C., Yale University and the Wadsworth Anthenium in Harford, Connecticut.
