Gregory Euclide: Environmental Artwork

Gregory Euclide is an artist and teacher living in the Minnesota River Valley. His reverence for the natural world originates from his childhood in rural Wisconsin, where he developed an appreciation for nature. The interconnectedness of the environment and culture led Euclide to explore how landscape (a way of viewing the land) is tied to the actual treatment and use of land.

Euclide received his MFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and was awarded two Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grants through the National Endowment for the Arts and a Jerome Foundation Residency through the Blacklock Nature Sanctuary. His work was featured in Badlands: New Horizons in Landscape at MASS MoCA (May 2008 – April 2009) and was most recently included in the exhibition Otherworldly at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York. Euclide’s work is currently on view at the Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, New Jersey in the exhibition Deconstructing Nature, and in Small Worlds, opening in November at the Toledo Museum of Art in Ohio.
