Nicholaus Arnold received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Wright State University and his Master of Fine Arts from Syracuse University where he received the prestigious Shaffer Fellowship. He’s currently the Galleries Director for University of Dayton and also runs The Blue House Gallery with his wife, Ashley Jonas. Despite managing these multiple jobs, he maintains his own studio practice in Dayton and exhibits locally and nationally with pointed works of art designed to generally make his audience feel comfortable with his weird sense of humor. Nick is generally at home with practicing in most mediums and writing about himself in the third person.
