Greg Rubio earned a BFA from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and an MFA from the University of Delaware. He is the recipient of numerous awards and scholarships, including a Fulbright Fellowship to México. His current work brings together his family traditions of archery and sewing in the colorful and symbolic Archery Target Series. Old clothes and sheets are torn, cut, arranged, and then hand stitched and drawn on in order to create functional archery targets. Greg finds satisfaction in this cycle of mending and destruction, in which he creates something beautiful and personally significant from old and used materials. Greg has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout U.S. and internationally in México and Spain.
