|Andrew Criss works in oils. His paintings hang in private and public collections throughout the United States and Canada, and he has exhibited in numerous galleries in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Andrew earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1992 from The University of Texas. In 1999, after working in Washington, DC as an artist for graphics firms and publishers, Andrew made the commitment to paint full time. He relocated to Delaware and focused on figurative and landscape painting. Solo exhibitions at Peninsula Gallery in Lewes and the Rehoboth Art League reassured him he had made the right choice. His exhibition at the Homestead Gallery at the Rehoboth Art league remains one of the most successful in the League’s 60 plus year history.
Andrew is the 2006 recipient of the Delaware Division of the Arts’ Individual Fellowship for Painting. This prestigious award is given to established Delaware artists who have shown dedication and success in their work. As part of his fellowship, Andrew’s landscapes currently hang in The Biggs Museum of American Art in Dover, Delaware.
