Coverage

George Roland received his Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Printmaking from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1972. Shortly after, he began a long tenure as a Professor of Art at Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania, where he taught from 1979 until his retirement in 2014. Although retired, Roland continues to contribute to the academic community through guest lectures at universities. His professional background is firmly rooted in printmaking and painting, with a significant portion of his work characterized by abstract forms and vibrant colors. Notably, his work exemplifies the colorful and abstract trends of the 1970s, aligning with the era's departure from tangible reality in art.

In addition to his traditional printmaking and painting pursuits, Roland has recently delved into the realm of computational art. Utilizing computer programs to create real-time displays, this new medium has allowed him to explore dynamic, moving images, integrating his long-standing interest in abstract forms and color. This innovative approach enables Roland to work directly with light, a prospect that holds significant appeal for an artist devoted to vibrant, abstract expressions. As a Professor Emeritus of Art at Allegheny College, his work continues to inspire and influence both the academic and artistic communities.
