Original Artwork by Local Artist James Brown is on display at
City of Green’s the Central Administration Building through MayJim Brown

Green, OH – Mayor Gerard Neugebauer is pleased to announce that the art of James N. Brown, a local artist, is on display in the lobby of the Central Administration Building, 1755 Town Park Blvd., through May.Jim Brown

“I am honored and grateful to Mayor Neugebauer for liking my work and having one of my photographs from art-A-palooza hanging in his office,” said Brown. “I really appreciate that I have been asked to display my photographs in the Central Administration Building allowing me to show my work to new audiences."

Brown, a native of Sugarcreek, Ohio, lives in Akron. A photographer since college, he recently took his art to the next level after his retirement from a 31-year career in industry. Most of his work focuses on nature and wildlife photographs from the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and his travels.

As Brown describes, “It starts with a digital photograph. Then using Photoshop, I modify the color of the background to sepia/black and white, and then fade the edges of the photo to bring the viewer’s eye into the area of the subject. By ‘muting’ the background, the subject takes center stage.”

The Central Administration Building is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visitors are welcome to view the art display during these hours. All of the art on exhibit is for sale. Visit www.ispyphotos.com for details about the artist and his work.
