    Since 1973, Richard McWherter’s activities have included the learning, creating, exhibiting and teaching of photography as a Visual Art. McWherter’s photographs have appeared in several regional publications and have also been reproduced in national magazines for fine art photography.  In 1990 he received the top award for black and white photography from Photographer’s Forum magazine and his work appeared in the book The Best of Photography as a first place winner.  His self-published “How to” books were first sold on the Internet, with customers as far away as Greenland and Japan.      


     As an educator, McWherter is dedicated to the continued artistic growth of all learners.  He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1993 from Seton Hill University with a major in Studio Arts and a minor in Art Education.  In 1996 he became the current Visual Arts Instructor at the high school in his hometown in Western Pennsylvania and now serves as the Art Department Chair. He has also taught photography and digital imaging at the University and other local art centers. He has received many awards for his photographic art, as well as his innovations in teaching, and in 2007 he was named the Art Educator of the Year by the Greensburg Area Cultural Council. It is his belief that creative thinking and inventive problem solving skills are extremely important to the success of both individuals and society as a whole.


     McWherter was one of the first contemporary artists in the country to exhibit their work on-line through a self-designed personal Web page. The page was featured in a story in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in March of 1996 and appeared in syndication in newspapers across the nation. In December of 2000, he was included in the inaugural edition of the International Who’s Who in the 21st Century, published in Cambridge, England and distributed worldwide.


     His commercial clients have included both regional and national corporations and institutions, as well as freelance assignments for family portraiture and groups. Currently he works exclusively on self-assignments for gallery and book projects and is represented by his entrepreneurial venture, Walkwood Publishing.
