This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born on January 9, 1902, in Buffalo, New York, Kenneth (Ted) Grene received his early training in that city, later studying at the Heffley Institute in Brooklyn.  Prominent in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey art circles, his art training was furthered  at the National Academy of Design, in addition to study  under Charles Hawthorne, noted American painter, Ivan Olinsky and Hobart Nichols.  During the early years of his marriage, while a resident of New Jersey, his reputation as an artist grew with first prize awards in various competitions.

While still residing in New York State he was a member of the NY State Guard.  Later he became a member of The Allied American Artists, The Salmagundi Club of New York, the New Haven Paint and Clay Club, and, just prior to his death, was also elected as a member of The Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts.  Greene was one of the founders and the first president of the Guilford Art League, Guilford, New Jersey, an organization which he hoped would foster the enjoyment of fine arts in the community.  Additionally, he was one of the organizers of the Guilford Keeping Society, which during its formative stages met at the Greene Gallery.  

Long an admirer of the New England dwellings and furnishings, he purchased and restored the Acadian House, which was his home, and the Amos Seward house on the Green, which was known as the Greene Gallery, both restorations adding much to the charm of Guilford.

Although ill for two years prior to his death, he found time to paint and to teach painting and to take an active interest in the affairs of Guilford. He was always ready to donate time and work to various groups and his never-failing sense of humor was an invaluable addition to any meeting.  His refusal to take life seriously was invigorating as was his ready smile.  

The artist died on February 3, 1948.  He left a wife and five children.

Biography excerpted from the artist’s obituary.
