James Allen

Professor Emeritus

James Allen, Professor Emeritus, has taught drawing and painting at Daemen College for over forty years.  He holds a BFA from the University of Notre Dame, and an MFA from Wayne State University.

Professor Allen has exhibited his work in venues across the United States and in Canada, winning awards and purchase prizes in regional and national exhibitions.  His two most recognizable idioms are the installations of large figurative cut-out paintings and his "American Folk Tale" series of multi-media drawings.  Allen's work can generally be described as a meditation on the affections, fears, and obsessions of contemporary American society.
