Winslow McCagg fell in love with the magic of paint on canvas on a visit to The Carnegie/Mellon Museum in Pittsburg when he was seven years old. As a teenager he attended The Arts Student League, The Greenwich Village House of Pottery, and Rhode Island School of Art and Design. As a young adult he went to Hampshire College, The Museum School, and The Corcoran School. He worked at The Ward/Nasse Gallery in Soho and later Cheim - Read gallery in Chelsea. In 1984 having returned from Australia with the first collection of Aboriginal Totemic Dreamtime paintings he displayed the paintings at Emily Harvey's Artworks Gallery in Soho, and equally it was the first show of this work in New York City, and for that matter America. Winslow has been painting in the Shenandoah Valley since 1990 and has consistently shown his work in the venues that are scattered about this area, as well as New York City and Washington DC. Over the years, Winslow has, as well, hosted, organized, and mounted many shows for many other artists from both sides of the Blue Ridge. His primary mediums are oil paint, pencil, and ink.
