About the artist

Schuyler Dawson was named Best of Show by the jurors of the 2017 Southern Tier Biennial. As part of this honor Dawson was awarded a solo exhibition in the Center Gallery. Dawson’s sculpture incorporates found objects drawn from everyday life and reflects current trends in contemporary art. “My artistic practice is an exploration in ways of seeing, of finding meaning in the mundane, of finding value in the debased.”
