Geo Sipp, Clemson University MFA in Art Alum, Receives Excellence in Art Administration Award at SGCI, Atlanta


Geo Sipp lives in Kennesaw, Georgia, where he is the Director of the School of Art and Design at Kennesaw State University. His work is in numerous private, public and corporate collections and his work is represented by Weinberger Fine Art in Kansas City and the Adam Baumgold Gallery in New York. He is a past recipient of the Missouri Governor’s Award for Excellence in Education.

His current work is primarily intended for inclusion in a graphic novel entitled Wolves in the City, which has the French-Algerian War as its subject. Geo Sipp’s drawings, paintings and prints reflect our experiences as consumers of the media; images are created as responses to social and political situations. The work is intended to reevaluate the ubiquitous visual narrative to which we’ve become conditioned. In addition to his artwork, Geo’s research and scholarship on sequential art have appeared in numerous peer-reviewed publications and resulted in international speaking engagements.

Sipp was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts. He attended the University of Florida where he earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and Clemson University, where he earned a Master of Fine Arts degree. He worked as an illustrator in New York, having his work published by many of the leading newspapers, magazines and book publishers in the United States and abroad. geosipp.com


SGCI’s conference is the largest print organization in North America. Its annual conference is the biggest annual gathering focused on the field of printmaking. Artists from all 50 states attend the conference. Regular international attendees come from Canada, South and Central America, and Europe.
