Adam Mysock, Professor of Practice, Drawing & Painting
Painter Adam Mysock was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1983 - the son of an elementary school English teacher and a lab technician who specializes in the manufacturing of pigments. On account of a steady stream of folk tales from his mother, his father's vividly dyed work clothes, and a solid Midwestern work ethic, he developed an interest in painting and drawing all things Americana from a very early age. Mysock earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Painting and Art History in 2004 from Tulane University and an MFA from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in 2007. After his studies, he served as the coordinator for the city of Cincinnati's MuralWorks program and worked as an adjunct drawing professor at Sinclair Community College in Dayton. In the summer of 2008, Mysock became a Professor of Practice at Tulane University where he currently teaches and maintains a studio.
Mysock's work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally and is in private collections throughout the world, including those of Thomas Rusche, Thomas Coleman, and Michael Wilkinson. In 2012, he was awarded first prize “Best in Show” in the Ogden Museum’s first annual Louisiana Contemporary Juried Exhibition, and he was included in the 2013 South edition of New American Paintings this past summer.
Most recently, Mysock has exhibited at Pulse Miami, Volta9 in Basel, Switzerland, and White Linen Night at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery. He is scheduled to participate in a group exhibition, "Crescent City Connection," at the Dishman Art Museum in Beaumont, Texas in late September.
