Kipp McIntyre received his BFA in Drawing from the Atlanta College of Art in Atlanta, GA.. He is a former senior exhibition preparator at the Michael C. Carlos Museum of Emory University in Atlanta and gallery director at Converse College in Spartanburg, SC. From 2005 until 2010 he served as the director of economic development for Polk County, NC. In 2012, Mr. McIntyre opened St. Benedict Catholic Store in Greer, SC with his wife, Stephanie. His interests include Roman Catholic catechesis and understanding creative capacity in artist materials and methods that express faith and beckon us to return to our relationship with God. He attends the Extraordinary Form of the Mass at Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Taylors, South Carolina and credits the 'Latin Mass' as the catalyst for his continuous search into a deeper understanding of Christ and the Faith.
Our Current Installation Includes:
- Beautiful handcrafted traditional Catholic images which are transformed into one-of-a-kind indelible iron gall ink prints, using a very unique process that Mr. McIntyre has recently developed.
- Stunning scherenschnitte pieces cut completely free-hand using an x-acto knife to carve out traditional Catholic imagery on Strathmore 100% rag paper. Scherenschnitte is a paper-cutting technique first founded in 16th Century Germany & Switzerland.
Kipp McIntyre is an avid reader of rare, classic Catholic writings and his work is created through prayer and meditation, giving all glory due to God for the gift of his many talents.
