Cow House Studios’ aim is to support contemporary visual arts practice. We hope to foster a deep curiosity for one’s surroundings and encourage further engagement with the creative process as a catalyst for independent thought. To this end, we provide art education for children, teens and adults; facilities for colleges, schools and artist led groups; and an artist-in-residence programme for professional artists.
Frank, originally from Philadelphia, is a father, a photographer and avid cook. He exhibits his artwork internationally in galleries and universities and has been the recipient of various awards including Emerging Photographer of the Year from San Francisco Magazine. His work resides in the permanent collection of the Office of Public Works and has appeared in several publications. His Italian heritage and love of home cooked food have developed into a passion for cooking, and his meals are as much a part of the experience at Cow House as are the art-making and beautiful landscape. Frank is the photography instructor at Cow House. He loves teaching, and has a keen interest in a multidisciplinary, ideas-based approach to working with students. Frank obtained his BA in Moving Image Arts from the College of Santa Fe, New Mexico, and his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute.
