When not on the road as an art nomad, Garrison Buxton spends most of his time in the Green Mountains of Vermont with his wife, Alison, running Ad Hoc Art {AHA}, an art gallery, social think tank, and event production organization as well as Peripheral Media Projects {PMP}, a creative incubator and design/print studio using art direction and collaboration to produce conscious, life-enhancing media.  Born in Brooklyn, New York, Ad Hoc Art and Peripheral Media Projects were seminal in birthing NYC’s vibrant arts community in Bushwick, Brooklyn, now the pulse of the city.

AHA and PMP highlight the areas of street art, pop surrealism, lowbrow, illustration, comic book, tattoo, and printmaking, as well as the larger and extensive history of underground art, activism, and graffiti.  They are vehicles for artists who are passionate, committed to their craft, and challenging the boundaries of a “Fine Art” isolated from society at large and are dedicated to showing and creating work that is often marginalized by the more conventional and established art scene.

The Buxtons have executed public art projects across the US (California, New York, Indiana, Ohio, Nevada, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Louisiana…) and around the globe (Peru, the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Belgium and The Netherlands).

Currently the Buxtons are fixing up a late 1700’s family homestead in Vermont, which also happens to be where legendary WPA painter and printmaker Harry Shokler lived and worked in the 1900’s. Shokler was a key figure in transforming screen printing from being known as an industrial application to being recognized as a fine art form.  At their art farm homestead, the Buxtons focus on promoting sustainability, earth-friendly building techniques, gardening, printmaking, painting, back to the land movements, and activist history, among other symbiotic educational nuggets.  The Buxtons’ modus operandi: Fear Less, Love More; Make things; With many arms our reach is wide; Forever we are one.
