Gregg Coffee
Import / Export

Gregg Coffey has held an artistic presence in areas across the US ranging from Fort Wayne, IN to San Francisco, CA during the course of his life. He earned a BFA in painting from IU and an MA in printmaking from San Francisco State University. Yet his education didn’t stop there, he only continued to delve farther into arts education with a five year study of printmaking at Fort Mason Art Center and another two years at Naropa Institute in Boulder. He has studied Chinese brush painting, owned the Chastain-Zollinger Gallery, Balos-Coffey Gallery, and has shown his work internationally in Paris, Osaka, Stockholm, and Mexico City. Here in Fort Wayne he has contributed to promoting a rich community of artistic individuals as the Director of ArtLink Contemporary Art Gallery and as a professor at IPFW. Since his recent move back he has completed 19 paintings which he would say is his record, as he can dedicate up to two years on a single piece.
