Randy Hussong, Continuing Lecturer

randyRandy Hussong joined the faculty in 1994. He teaches printmaking and sculpture. Born mid year in the mid 1950’s in the middle of the day as the middle child of a middle class family, near the middle of California, Randy studied with Alanson Appleton, Pete Voulkas, Jim Melchert, Joan Brown, Elmer Bischoff and George Miyasaki-earning his BA and MFA from UC Berkeley. In 1980 he co-founded Jetwave, an alternative to the alternative galleries in San Francisco. He also served on the Board of Directors at New Langton Arts where he curated the first Ed ‘Big Daddy” Roth retrospective in 1990. Primarily a sculptor, always a printmaker, every other day a teacher. Randy creates sculptural installations combining suites of objects, both two and three dimensional, that synthesize art historical and pop conceptual references with social, political, comical and sensual realities. He has been called a post modern, late minimal, neo-dada, pop conceptualist folk artist-and that’s not all. Hussong has exhibited nationally and internationally. His work was featured in the “Under the Big Black Sun” exhibition at LAMoCA in 2012, “Made in California” exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 2000 and has exhibited locally at New Langton Arts, San Francisco, the Oakland Museum and the DiRosa Preserve in Napa, California. Randy received the James D. Phelan Art Award for Printmaking in 2007 and the Distinguished Teaching Award from the University of California in 2008-2009. He was also a  three-time finalist for the SECA Award-never the bride. Randy Hussong is represented by Gallery Paule Anglim in San Francisco.
