Biography from Butler Institute of American Art:
The name Vincent A. Hartgen is already considered synonymous with the arts by anyone familiar with his career as a painter, professor and proponent of the visual arts in Maine. Hartgen came to the University of Maine in 1946, recruited by then UMaine President Arthur Hauck, to build an art department. A month after arriving, Hartgen began spreading the word that UMaine was seeking to develop an art collection. He also created the first art education program for UMaine student teachers. "When he came here in 1946, there was no art program and very little art on campus," says Michael Lewis, UMaine professor of art. "When he arrived, he taught all of the academic courses, established the curriculum and established the program. He would always go out of his way to make sure that art was shared with the widest number of people possible. The amount of energy he brought to these tasks was unbelievable." In 1947, Hartgen's first New York solo exhibition was opened at the George Binet Gallery in 1947. From 1952-55, Hartgen served as trustee of the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Liberty and Deer Isle. At UMaine, Hartgen was appointed to the John Homer Huddilston Professorship of Art Chair in 1962. Last year, at the request of the Maine Senate President, Hartgen had a large, one-person show, A Maine Artist, exhibited in the Senate offices, and this year, his show Impressions of Kathadin, is in the Hinckley School Art Museum. Hartgen is the recipient of a number of awards, including the University of Maine Alumni Association's Black Bear Award, the UMaine Distinguished Professor Award, the Arts and the Humanities Governor's Art Award.
