Greg Copeland

Greg Copeland

Greg Copeland was a man who owned a company that sold art and decorative wall hangings through a showroom in High Point, NC (Greg Copeland, Inc.) at the Furniture Market. My father did dozens of original pieces for Greg, who then reproduced it in quantities to sell to department stores, furniture stores, gift shops, as well as specified by architects and designers, etc.
I was in college in Boston eating with a friend at a Pizzaria Uno's. I looked up at the art hanging at my table and it was my dad's from Greg Copeland. Probably not a lot of value to any of the pieces unless the artist has become really famous.

I am the daughter of Robert Bidner (deceased). The prints you are referring to were "chromographs" produced by Greg Copeland Inc. in the early 1980s. They are not original paintings, but photographic reproductions of his paintings that were overlaid on a canvas-like material for a painting "look".
Unfortunately, the Copeland process was NOT colorfast and most (if not all) of my father's chromoliths are very faded. They only retain the sepia/brown color rather than full color spectrum.
There were also some very high quality lithographs of cars and architecture made by my father (not Copeland) in the same time period. These were archivally produced and still look great today.
Don't know the value of the Copeland chromographs now, but they occasionally show up on Ebay.
Hope that helps.  Jenni Bidner
