TROY WINGARD

A graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design (BFA – Graphic Design) and the University of Georgia (MFA – Drawing & Painting), Troy Wingard has dedicated much of his career to creating art and sharing what he has personally discovered about its development and promotion. His work addresses questions centering on identity, culture, and individualism within a modern context. 

Troy's drawings and sculptures have been featured in numerous venues throughout the United States, as well as solo exhibitions in over 14 academic institutions such as Duke University, Grambling State University, the University of South Carolina-Aiken, The University of Mobil, and Coastal Carolina University, among others.  His works have been exhibited internationally, including invitational and solo exhibitions in Havana, Cuba; Budapest, Hungary; Camagüey, Cuba, and Tel Aviv, Israel.  Troy was also the featured artist in the nationally syndicated magazine, The Pastel Journal, and his work has been nationally showcased in two separate editions of New American Paintings.

Troy has taught a variety of studio art and seminar courses as an instructor with the University of Georgia and Southeastern Louisiana University, as well as serving as the program coordinator for the School of Design at the Art Institute of Washington-Dulles.  For several seasons, he also served as program coordinator, faculty manager, and instructor for the University of Georgia's Latin America Study Abroad Art (LASA) Program where he taught observational drawing, painting, and figure drawing in countries and locales such as Cuba, Costa Rica, Ecuador, and the Galapagos Islands. 

In 2018, Troy completed his post-graduate studies by earning a Certificate in Arts Management from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst while working in Israel for two years as an artist and lecturer. His research utilized prominent Israeli art organizations as case studies to examine the nonprofit arts management systems and ideologies between the State of Israel and the United States.

Troy currently resides in Northern Virginia with his wonderful wife Kathy and their two cats. He is also very grateful to be the son of Terry and Hope Wingard.
