Art Show Judging

Craig Britton

Visual artist Craig Britton was born in Chicago, Illinois, and raised there and the Kansas City area. He took up visual art early on, doing cartoons for school papers in Jr. High and High school.
 

  • Craig attended  the Art Academy of Cincinnati to complete his BFA at age 35; going on to earn his MFA from The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1998.

  • In 1999, Craig was awarded a ‘Percent for Art Grant’ by South Eastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority for his project, “Seasons of Juniata”. It is in permanent installation at the Erie-Torresdale elevated train station, Philadelphia, PA. Craig also served as a staff muralist and teacher with the Philadelphia Mural Arts Commission.

  • On his art making process: Painting flowers is a freeing experience for me, and an exploration into abstraction and the patterns that I find in nature. “ I choose subjects as jumping off points, as vehicles to explore what I am feeling. Responses and perceptions are fleeting, so I choose loose, abbreviated marks to express that.” “ My aim has always been to make work which is compelling in its beauty, or at least intriguing in the way that a piece of music can be.”

  • Craig’s work is a combination of working from life and studio work. He has been exhibiting since 1981, and his first solo show was in 1995. His work is in many private, corporate and Municipal collections in the US, Europe and the Caribbean.
