Profile: Gregory Scheckler creates art, writing, and teaching rooted in imagery from nature and its observation, relying on contemporary art methods, science and sometimes science fiction. His writings can be found at the Berkshire Review for the Arts, The Mind’s Eye, and Thought & Action. Since the early 90’s, his artworks were in exhibits with Ferrin Gallery and Metro One Gallery, as well as at museums including the One West Art Center, the Boyden Gallery at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, the Bennington Museum, the Center for the Visual Arts Gallery at Illinois State University and the National Science Foundation. He earned degrees from the University of Notre Dame, Utah State University, and Washington University in St. Louis, and he is also a proud graduate of the Clarion West Writers Workshop. In addition, he serves as Professor of Art at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, where he founded the art major program. He envisions the arts as survival strategies, playgrounds, vivid storytelling, rich ways of thinking, and delightful functions of our core desire to communicate. When he’s not writing, artmaking, or teaching, he and his wife ski, hike and bike the Berkshires and tend their solar-powered home in the company of two fuzzy cats.
