instructor of art & humanities
Raoul Pacheco was born on a military base in Wiesbaden, Germany in 1972. He moved frequently living in such European cities as Amsterdam, Stuttgart, and Brussels while also bouncing back and forth between southern towns such as Homestead, FL, Warner Robins, GA and Myrtle Beach SC. He found himself settling down long enough to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Augusta State University in 1999. Raoul spent the next years teaching Middle school and High school art at Augusta Preparatory Day school as well as art organizations such as the Gertrude Herbert Art Institute, Art Factory and the Artscape camp sponsored by the Greater Augusta Arts Council. Pacheco ventured west and in 2006 Raoul completed his master's degree in ceramics from the California College of Arts in San Francisco, California. He has since returned back to Augusta where he is currently a temporary fulltime professor at Augusta State University.
Raoul's work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. in such prestigious galleries such as Mary Pauline Gallery in Augusta GA, Hang Art Gallery in San Francisco, CA and Boontling Gallery in Oakland, CA. His work is also currently housed in many collections around the globe in such cities as St Petersburg, Russia, Reykjavik, Iceland, Amsterdam, Holland and Los Angeles and San Francisco California.
