With a Master of Fine Arts Degree from Yale University and a B. S. from Case Western Reserve University, Van Duzer is truly a remarkable American artist.

The Van Duzer Perspective undoubtedly will leave gallery goers with a feeling of greatness. This extraordinary artist has sustained a viable art career in a city that often makes it seem that earning a living in art is impossible. Van Duzer, who continues to produce work from his Cleveland studio, has left his mark in Cleveland’s history.

Van Duzer, who retired from teaching after 30 years currently, has the honor of being Professor Emeritus from the Cleveland Institute of Art.
