About Gary Schott
Gary Schott currently resides in Houston, Texas, but he grew up in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He earned his BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Stout and his MFA from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. For the past decade, his studio practice has continually branched out to explore kinetic sculptural and wearable objects. Humor and utilitarian undertones in his work help to provide silly, somewhat questionable, functional moments of interaction. He has shown nationally and internationally, is a former LEAP Award winner, and is included in the book, Humor in Craft, by Brigitte Martin.
