Chris Volpe

Christopher Volpe is an artist, writer, and teacher whose paintings approach nature less as a visual motif than as a site of introspection and metaphor for intangible feelings and ideas. His work is shown nationally and held in the permanent collections of Smith College and the Whistler House Museum as well as in numerous private collections. Grants and awards include the Saint Botolph Club Foundation, MassMoCA/Assets for Artists, and the NH State Council on the Arts Artist Advancement Grant. With degrees from the University of New Hampshire and Stony Brook University, he has taught painting, literature, mythology, and the history of art at various colleges and universities. He writes regularly about art and artists online and off.
