Ginny Piech Street grew up in Indiana and earned a BFA in studio art with an emphasis in printmaking at Murray State University in Kentucky. From there she lived in the South Carolina Low Country and tropical, festive Key West. Each of these places has influenced her art perspective.

 

With her printmaking background, paper has been her “go to” medium, however, she’s recently enjoyed breaking away to explore clay. The tactile nature of clay added to the easy manipulation of the material has allowed Ginny to pursue her desire to be more three dimensional.

 

Among Ginny’s accomplishments are three large scale public art installations, two of which are owned by the City of Fort Pierce and St. Lucie County, FL. Ginny has exhibited in Chelsea, NYC, Le Moyne Art Foundation in Tallahassee and has won first place in sculpture at Bradenton’s Village Of The Arts Holiday Show. In college she won the President’s Award, the highest honor bestowed upon an art student at Murray State University. She is co-founder and former board member of Art Mundo, A Center For Creative Expression in Fort Pierce, FL. Ginny also co-founded Peacock Clay Collaborative, a working clay studio in the heart of downtown Fort Pierce. Most recently she co-founded and is the current manager of Indian River Clay, a non-profit clay studio in Vero Beach.
