Mike Sweeney’s M.F.A. (1990) from the University of Connecticut began a core interest in social engagement and bridges between visual and textual literacy. His 2019 interview in LandEscape Now! 10th edition was bookended by duo and solo exhibitions at the Hartford Public Library ArtWalk and the Pegasus Gallery at MXCC. In 2020 and 2021, Mike participated in exhibitions with the National Collage Society, Cimarron National Works on Paper, and New Grounds Remarque Print Workshop. After training on the job in antique furniture restoration in 2015, the recombination and synthesis of common materials through craft technique has become more integral to Mike’s process and practice.
