Welcome to A Youth Wasted: The Artwork of Barrett Long.
I am a multi disciplinary artist. In 2011 I graduated from the Alberta Collage of Art + Design in Calgary Alberta with a Bachelors of Fine Arts with Distinction in Print Media. Never content to stick to one medium I branched away from Print during my time at ACAD and in-turn created work within many different disciplines. Most important to me was the Media and Digital Technologies department. It was there I began to explore Digital technologies as a way in which to create.
After taking some time away from the world of academia I was able to find a Masters of Fine Arts program that allowed me to focus upon any number of mediums I wanted all within the department of Electronic Integrated Arts. I am currently within the last semester of my second and final year at Alfred University and will be graduating with my MFA this May. I will be exhibiting my thesis work on April 19th, 2014 at Robert C. Turner Gallery in Alfred., New York in a show titled “Complicit Actuality”.
I am trying to be more proactive in displaying my work as well as promoting events and shows I am a part of so please stay tuned to A Youth Wasted: The Artwork of Barrett Long for all the latest info. You could also follow me on Twitter, Vimeo or Facebook as sometimes due to ease they are updated more often.
