    Albright Art Gallery is excited to announce the opening of Raphael Griswold's exhibit GOING PLACES. Raphael's work will be displayed September 12th through November 6th. Everyone is welcome to visit with Raphael at a special artist reception on Thursday September 15th from 6pm to 8pm. Come gather with friends and art enthusiasts to take a look at our world through the eyes of a witty, versatile artist.


    GOING PLACES is an exhibition of varied media in which artist Raphael Griswold attempts to comment not on specific places themselves, but on the idea that the very will to create is performative, or at least a facet of the acts of living. Through painting, film and photography, Raphael creates an environment in which viewers are able to consider the specific contents of each individual artwork on display and how those objects create the environment they inhabit. Each artwork or “artobject” (as Raphael likes to call them) holds a special significance to the artist himself although the locations are less important than the fact that the “artobjects” were created by either actively or passively visiting, viewing and depicting the locations in which they were created.
    Raphael Griswold was raised in Newton, MA until enrolling at Wesleyan University in 2002. He graduated from Wesleyan University in 2006 with a bachelor's degree in studio art. He has attended Wesleyan University, La Universidad Complutense de Madrid and La Universidad de Carlos III de Madrid. From 2009 through 2011, Raphael lived in Madrid, Spain working as an artist and as a teacher of English. He has exhibited work in the United States and Europe since 2006, and had his first solo exhibition in Madrid in 2011. Trained as a printmaker, Raphael has worked with master printers Peter Pettengill and Keiji Shinohara as both a printer of etchings and printer's assistant. Beginning in the fall of 2011, Raphael will live and work in New York City as an artist and as president of GRISWORLD INDUSTRIES.
