Richard (Dick) Weis has had a long career as an artist/teacher beginning in the 1960s in Bemidji Minnesota. Teaching opportunities and advanced study led him to Wisconsin, Oregon, Northern Virginia/Washington D.C. , Ohio, Indiana, and eventually to Vermont. He joined the faculty of Green Mountain College in 1989 and worked there until retiring from full time teaching in 2010. His early career was founded upon the design and perceptual ideas of Josef Albers. In graduate school, he transitioned into more figurative work, completing his M.F.A. in painting at The American University in Washington D.C. In 1973 Dick won the David Lloyd Kreeger Award for graduate painting. Dick has exhibited widely in the U.S. and abroad. In 2002-2003 he was invited to be a visiting artist at Aberystwyth University in Wales and received a Fulbright Scholar Award to work as an Artist in Residence in South Korea. In the fall of 2010, he was invited back to Korea through the Fulbright Senior Specialist Program to work with students and faculty in the art education department at Hannam University.
