Artists Represented


Wallace Harper

Wallace Harper was born in Columbia, Missouri before moving with his family to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida at an early age.

After earning a degree in studio art and a masters in art education from Florida Atlantic College, he worked in various art related fields designing product packaging, styling windows for stores in Palm Beach, teaching design courses and art appreciation at community colleges from Palm Beach County to Miami / Dade, and was a curator in several galleries and museums including the San Francisco Airport Museums, the Norton Museum of Art, Palm Beach, the Wolfson Galleries at Miami Dade Community College and the Joy Moos Gallery in Miami.

The flat landscape of Florida and its lush tropical terrrain has influenced his photography and fueled his interest in creating series of digital images in abstract compositions of our residential environments. His collages, made during the early 1990s, demonstrated a patience akin to piecing together jigsaw puzzles, yet incorporated the complicated nature and sophistication of collages made by early 20th century artists such as the Cubists and Constructivists.

After spending nearly his entire life in south Florida, Harper moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1996, where he maintains his interest in photography and in 20th century decorative arts, and entertains a return to making collages.
