2019 Featured Artist

Visual Artist Eric Zippe honored as our 2019 Featured Artist
Eric Zippe has spent many hours and traveled many miles honing his talents as a visual artist specializing in fine art and commercial photography.

He was born into a farm family in southern New Castle County, near Clayton, Delaware. In his early years he spent much of his time working on the farm and involved with various 4-H projects. Eric earned a BFA in Fine Arts from the University of Delaware, where he studied under photographers John Weiss, Priscilla Smith and Peter Croydon. He has developed his own style and vision while learning from such notable photographers as Jay Maisel, Robert Llewellyn, & Arthur Meyerson.

His photo career can be described as eclectic, as he has worked in such photographic
fields as wildlife and travel photography, portraiture, commercial and sports photography,
photojournalism, and digital photo retouching. Eric’s client list includes Fila shoes, Budweiser
and Mercedes Benz. His work has been published and exhibited to great acclaim both nationally and internationally and he is a multiple award winning artist.

When asked what his favorite thing about photography is, he just smiles and says, “The reaction the viewer has to my images.”

Eric has been an adjunct faculty member at Cecil College in North East, Maryland and Delaware Technical Community College in Dover, Delaware. He has taught a range of subjects including; digital imaging, studio photography, nature and wildlife and travel photography.

Many of his students have gone on to be award winning artists themselves.
