Douglas Degges, a Shreveport, LA native, is an accomplished artist and Assistant Professor of Art in Painting and Drawing at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT. He holds an MFA from the University of Iowa and a BA in Studio Art from Rhodes College, Memphis, TN.


With a notable exhibition history, Douglas has showcased his work in various US and international galleries, including Proyecto T in Mexico City, Side Room Gallery in Brooklyn, and the PrattMWP Gallery in Utica, NY. His art has also been featured in galleries in Chicago, Atlanta, and his hometown of Shreveport.

Douglas's artistic journey has been enriched by prestigious artist residencies, including those at the Josef & Anni Albers Foundation, Stove Works, the Vermont Studio Center, El Sur, and the Millay Colony.

Since Fall 2019, Douglas has embarked on a compelling project titled "Squirrel from Memory." Drawing from cell phone photos shared by his family in Louisiana, this ongoing series explores digital experiences, the pressure to establish a singular artistic voice, and the abstract concept of home held within the body.

In this visually and materially diverse body of work, Douglas Degges continues to push the boundaries of contemporary art, prompting viewers to reflect on identity, memory, and the impact of the digital age.
