Second Reception: Thursday, September 8th, 5 – 9 PM
Cloud Gallery is pleased to present Scott Rispin; The Well Constructed Myth August 11th through September 30th. Scott Rispin’s work examines the nature of seeing and how it is not a perfect reflection of the world, but an inference based on our long history of experiences, beliefs, fears, desires and prejudices. The “reality” we think we are seeing is our first well-constructed myth.
Please join us for an artist reception on Thursday, Aug 11th from 5 – 9 p.m.
Scott Rispin began his 30+ years of artistic pursuits developing logos, carving signage and hand painting signs in his hometown of South Lake Tahoe, California. Since settling in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1990, Scott has been a working professional in nearly every aspect of the commercial arts; from ad agencies to silk screening, custon graphics/signage to muralist. He received his BA in Art Education from Mercyhurst College in 2003, and his MFA in painting from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania in 2008. Scott has received awards in sculpture, painting, and public art projects.
Scott Rispin currently teaches at Penn State Erie, the Behrend College, as well as the Erie Art Museum.
