Gregory Piatt

Greg Piatt is a fine-arts printmaker specializing in lithography, monotype, and relief work. He also utilizes these unique disciplines in his studio/printshop in Pleasant Hill, California.

Greg grew up in the wooded East Bay hills, and that environment fostered a deep love and respect for landscape and wildlife. This lasting attraction to nature has influenced his art, from the flowing brushwork of his plein-air painting and prints to his mixed-media pieces.

He has taught as a guest artist and master printer in a variety of schools, including the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Kala Institute in Berkeley, and the California State Prison in Vacaville. Since 1992 he has been curator of the Summit Gallery, located in Mount Diablo State Park at the top of the mountain. His diverse interests range from archery to birding, collecting (ceramic elves, bows and arrows, carved wooden animals, colored LPs), music, Miwok Indian culture, planting, pruning, and skiing.
