Chris Corrao, Featured Artist for November First Friday

Orbitals_16x20_2012_Acrylic-SprayPaintSteeple View Lofts is pleased to feature local artist Chris Corrao during November's First Friday Event! Emerging artist Chris Corrao earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Millersville University of Pennsylvania in 2012. He has developed a multifaceted body work utilizing a number of varied mediums. He prefers to work in an ever-changing manner; never hanging on to one medium or series of works for too long. He is currently creating abstract photograms (a non-traditional photography process), relief prints and paintings. While growing up in a musical family, Chris learned to compost music through improvisation. This practice also found its way into his art making. Many of his most successful works were created through an improvisational use of materials. He loves to watch a piece form as it is created by quick, instinctual movements. The physical results of these actions produces a unique composition controlled by a chance that can never be reproduced by hand. Chris began showing his works publicly in 2005 and maintains a busy exhibition schedule in Downtown Lancaster and the surrounding region. He is also frequently exhibiting with the Lancaster County Art Association based in Strasburg, Pennsylvania. By day, Chris works as an in-house graphic designer, producing regional and national ads, brochures, mail pieces and much more. He is also a member of AIGA -- the national association for professional graphic designers. He hopes to one day continue his arts education and earn a Master of Fine Arts degree.
