NEXT ARTIST

  • ARTIST BIO

    William H. Skerritt is a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY, with a B.A. in geology. “My art is largely informed by my other interests including my profession, geology,science, and history. It is also influenced by my fascination with certain places, with ruins, with relics, and with the bizarre. Not having any formal instruction in art, I improvised with drawing and painting. From 1975 until the early 1990s, my principal medium was scrimshaw, which I sold on Nantucket.” Beginning in the late 1990s, Skerritt received instruction in printmaking, principally from Linda K. Ryder in Troy, NY. Most recently Skerritt received instruction on the white line woodblock print from Kathryn Lee Smith in Provincetown and continues to maintain that mentorship.

  • SELECT EXHIBITIONS

    Beginning in 1999, I participated in various local juried shows and had four solo shows, one at the Arts Center of the Capital Region, in Troy, of prints and assemblages (2004), another at Troy City Hall, of etchings of local interest (2005), another at a Troy commercial gallery (2011), and another at the Sand Lake Arts Center (2012). Several of my prints appeared in an issue of the now-defunct arts magazine, Salvage, including the cover. Since 2003, my etchings have been included in six shows at the International Print Center New York (IPCNY) in Chelsea (2004, 2007, 2009, 2012, 2013, 2015). My suite of 8 etchings, Friction, was included in the New Prints, Winter 2009, show at IPCNY, which traveled to Chicago for the 2009 Southern Graphics Council Convention. In the New Prints Autumn 2015-6, my work was featured in the advertising. I have also been included in five shows organized by the New York Society of Etchers, and shown at the National Arts Club at Gramercy Park (2007, 2008), and in the first (2011) and third (2013) National Intaglio Print Exhibitions, a joint show of Australian and New York etchers (2014), as well as the 15th anniversary show (2015). During 2016, an etching was selected for the annual small prints show at the Ink Shop Printmaking Center in Ithaca, NY. Also during 2016, Troy As I See It, a collection of 50 prints and drawings of my hometown, was published.
