James Groleau was born in Lewiston, Maine in 1960. He is the recipient of numerous awards, grants and fellowships, including residencies at the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire, Engramme in Quebec City, St Michaels’s Printshop in Newfoundland, and the Frans Masereel Centrum in Belgium. His work is included in the collections of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; Portland Museum of Art, Maine; Cleveland Museum of Art, Ohio; Oakland Museum of California; Royal Museum of Fine Art, Antwerp, Belgium; among other national and international museums. A solo show of his mezzotints was displayed at the Ekaterinburg Museum of Fine Arts, Russia in 2012. Groleau currently focuses his attention on a collage technique that he continues to develop, producing abstract and semi-abstract landscapes as well as representational work. He divides his time between the San Francisco Bay area and coastal Maine.
