Carter Shappy


Carter is a printmaker by trade and likes to branch out into installation mixed media. He has been at RWS since 2015 and manages our print studio and wood shop. Carter has a deep appreciation for the time he spends in the studio tinkering. He loves exploring things that are of very little consequence and have a broader implication in the meaning of his own life and the way he sees others lives. As he sees it, there’s no consequence if his experimentation fails--he’s not building a bridge or structure meant to hold. There may be some personal consequences, but it’s a “private, intimate study of very miniscule things.” This attention to detail is evident in his work.
