About me

Gregory Scheckler crafts writing and art. 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 paintings, cartoons and photos were exhibited over a hundred times, with galleries and museums such as Ferrin Gallery, 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 began working at MCLA in the year 2000, and as Professor of Art he founded the art major program. He envisions the arts as survival strategies, playgrounds, vivid storytelling, rich ways of thinking, and core functions of our humanity.

He earned the MFA in Art from Utah State University with a thesis that combined art and poetry. He earned the BFA in Painting as an Eliot Honors Scholar at Washington University in St. Louis, and earned the BA in Art and Modern and Classical Languages / German with high honors from the University of Notre Dame. He is also a proud graduate of the Clarion West Writers Workshop.
