Greg Mencoff, Visiting Lecturer in Studio Foundation teaches Studio for Drawing, Drawing Projects, and Form Study. His interests lie in the “Architecture of Things”, how and why objects originate, their implied identity, and what is their place, or utility, if any. The work is influenced by his involvement with electronic music, notably through the study and research of sonic principles and progressions that originated with Minimalist music theory. Repetition and their variances is a dominant theme in both his drawings and sculptures. Recent exhibitions include “Chasing Artifacts” at Carroll and Sons, Boston, MA (2014); “Bradley International Print and Drawing Exhibition”, Peoria, Il. (2013); “New England Biennial 2012”, Brattleboro Museum, Brattleboro, Vt.; “Wood Work”, Clark University, Worcester, MA (2011). Mencoff received a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Fellowship for Sculpture in 2005 and 2009 and a SMFA Traveling Fellowship in 2010. He was the principle at Boston Frame, a woodworking studio in Boston from 1987 -2006 and was Owner/ Curator of bf Annex Gallery in Boston from 2003-2006. He was an Associate Drawing Faculty at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts from 1984-1997 and has been a Visiting Faculty at Tufts University Fine Arts Dept. since 2006.
