Douglas G. Campbell is a painter, printmaker and mixed media artist living in Portland, Oregon. His art is in the collections of the Portland Art Museum, Oregon State University, Ashford Pacific and George Fox University and included in numerous private collections. His style, content and choice of media are varied, as he once said “My work ranges from the sublime to the ridiculous; I like to play both sides of the street.”
He earned his Ph.D. in Comparative Arts at Ohio University and his M.F.A. in Printmaking from Pratt Institute.
Douglas is Professor Emeritus of the Department of Visual Art at George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon, where he was a professor of art history, drawing, printmaking and painting since 1990. In 2012, he received George Fox University’s Undergraduate Faculty Achievement Award for Research and Scholarship. He has also taught at other institutions in Oregon including Lewis and Clark College, the Pacific Northwest College of Art and the Oregon College of Art and Craft.
His studio work has ranged from humorous, to a series on monoprints created in response to the poetry of Scott Cairns, to the development of a painting style he has labeled photo-expressionism. His artworks have been included in over 170 juried and invitational exhibits across the country.
He is also the author of Seeing: When Art and Faith Intersect (2002) and Parktails (2012). His poetry and artworks have been published in a number of periodicals including Carcinogenic Poetry, Borderlands, RiverSedge, Rockhurst Review and In the Teeth of the Wind.
