About Gregory Euclide
Gregory Euclide is an artist and teacher living in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. His attraction to the landscape originates from his experience of growing up in the rural landscapes of Wisconsin. Free to roam from farm field to forest edge, he developed an appreciation for authentic experience within the natural landscape. The complexity and interconnectedness of the environment had a profound impact on him as a child and would become the content and conceptual framework for his future work.
After teaching high school art for three years in southern Minnesota, he took a teaching job in the Twin Cities. In 2001 Gregory was awarded a summer residency at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. This time allowed him the opportunity to explore a number of materials and techniques important to the development of later works. In the past few years Gregory has shown his work at over one hundred events and locations in the Twin Cities. He has been awarded a a Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant and a Jerome Foundation Residency through the Blacklock Nature Sanctuary. Currently he is teaching high school art and attending graduate school at The Minneapolis College of Art and Design on a Trustee Scholarship.
This Saturday is the first of a quarterly event held in Minneapolis, called Connoisseur. It will feature a mixture of music, video and fashion/art. YouWorkForThem will be premiering a new video during the event. Connoisseur will be held at the stunning historic Suburban World Theater. Check the site for a mix and see you there!
