duane cregger

DUANE CREGGER is an artist working in oils and mixed media. His paintings are visual dialogues of past events and potential futures, visually defined by color, texture, and mark-making. Multiple surface layers suggest an accumulation of subconscious ideas and experiences that beg expression toward a goal of resolving conflict within the psyche. Ultimately, the work is an invitation to contemplate the human experience.

Cregger has a degree in art communications from Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia, and a decades-long award-winning career in design and creative direction. He has been recognized for excellence in various exhibitions, including the juried biennials at Roanoke College's Olin Hall Galleries and William King Museum. His work is in corporate collections in the mid-Atlantic, in private collections across the United States (including that of actress/director Drew Barrymore), and in Canada and the Caribbean. A triptych from his Crown: New Work 2022 series was acquired by a philanthropist for the Roanoke College Permanent Collection.

Cregger's paintings have been featured in Élan Magazine, American Art Collector, Cottage Style by Better Homes & Gardens, Home & Design, Richmond Home. Traditional Home, and the Better Homes & Gardens Home Decorating Guide. Most recently his work was seen in the Hulu special series, Dopesick, directed by and starring Michael Keaton.

Cregger lives in Richmond, Virginia, with his husband and their two Daisy Dogs and maintains a studio space, open by appointment, at Crossroads Art Center.
