George Shaw is an artist residing in Cambridge, Massachusetts, graduating with honors from Massachusetts College of Art in 1983 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting in 1983.  George’s aesthetic interests also extend to his studies of classical architecture and restoration, and he recently attended the Boston Architectural College, receiving a Certificate of Historic Preservation.  He feels that within the classical idea in architecture one can establish proportion unity and order to untamed reality, which is mirrored in his paintings and sculptures.
