Erik Sandgren is a practicing and widely exhibiting artist as well as professor of Fine Arts and Humanities courses at Grays Harbor College. He has been the primary visual art faculty there since 1989: tenured since 1992.

His educational background is a BFA from Yale College (1975) and an MFA in painting and Printmaking from Cornell University (1977). His father was a professor of painting at Oregon State University: He grew up in a household saturated with visual art and visiting artists. His father’s most influential teacher at the University of Oregon had been David McCosh who had studied with the American Regionalist painter Grant Wood. This represents one of the two main strands of his background and education as a painter. The other complementary strand has been my ongoing connection with a milieu of east coast painters initiated during his undergraduate studies at Yale College with Bernard Chaet. Irwin Hauer, and Gretna Campbell.

He was awarded a Fulbright Teaching Exchange posting to England and have received two sabbatical leaves from GHC for European travel to paint and extend my background in the history of art and architecture. He has twice been artist in residence with the Alfred and Trafford Klots Program in Rochefort-en-Terre, Brittany administered by the Maryland Institute College of Art. He is a member of Print Arts Northwest, and has served six years as a board member of the Washington State Technical and Community College Humanities Association.
