Anthony Surratt is a mixed-media abstract artist. While he adds multiple layers of paint, paper, and other material to his paintings and assemblages, it is frequently via methods of subtraction and excavation—sanding, scraping, gouging, sawing, and digging—that their ultimate meanings emerge.
Surratt’s paintings have been exhibited throughout New England and Georgia and in online exhibitions. He is an active volunteer and artist member of Southern Vermont Arts Center and serves on the board of directors of Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning, in Manchester, Vermont.
He currently is pursuing a Master of Fine Arts degree at Maine College of Art & Design in Portland and is a candidate for graduation in May 2023. He earned a bachelor’s degree in communication from Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana, and a certificate in interior design from Parsons School of Design in New York City.
Before becoming a full-time artist, Surratt worked in corporate communications for more than 25 years, including at Cox Communications in Atlanta and Time Warner Cable in NYC. He resides in southern Vermont.
