Area of Study:
Cassie Berringer is a printmaker exploring ways to connect with people at a spiritual level through her art. She is experimenting to find how to tear down the walls between Christian art and mainstream contemporary art. Berringer is from Aurora, Ohio. In high school, she received a national-level Scholastics silver award for her portfolio. While attending Malone University, she worked as an assistant to the chair of the art department, aiding in the managing and curating of gallery spaces around campus. She participated in several exhibitions throughout her time at Malone including her own Senior Exhibition and her Honors Thesis Exhibition. She graduated from Malone with a BA in drawing and painting. Wishing to pursue printmaking, she attended additional printmaking courses at Kent State University. At this time she also completed multiple mural commissions. Having gained the appropriate additional mathematics credits from KSU in addition to the credits from her mathematics minor from Malone, Berringer then worked as a substitute schoolteacher with full time sub license in Mathematics and Art. After a year and a half of teaching, she chose to return to her own schooling. She is currently attending Penn State University pursuing a MFA in printmaking with the aim to teach art at the college level. Her art is also currently displayed in a gallery in Cleveland, Ohio, Agape: Gallery for Good.
