Chuck Mountain brings a wide range of interests and experiences to his artwork. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Chuck earned a BA and a MA in applied violin at the University of California, Northridge. Throughout the Los Angeles area, he performed and taught, composed and directed music in the community.
He then went on to earn his MDiv at Luther Theology Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota, and to serve two parishes in South Dakota. During this time, he authored two published books and served the musical community in South Dakota by performing as a violinist and producing a radio show, Bach in Context, for South Dakota Public Radio.
With a move to Denver, Chuck continued theological studies at St Thomas Seminary (Hispanic Ministries) and played professionally in the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Theodore Kuchar. For several years he produced a radio program, God in Music Glorified, which featured his interpretations of the musical form and texts of the great choral composers from Bach to Bernstein. A devoted father, Chuck home schooled his son for two years.
Chuck received his AA degree in graphic design from the Community College of Denver. He then worked as a freelance graphic designer and as a co-publisher with his wife. For five years he taught Introduction to Computer Graphics at Arapahoe Community College.
Currently he is living in Gettysburg, PA, with his wife, Jane. They have a son, a daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. Chuck brings his varied interests and life experiences to creating digital art. His goal is to combine his diverse experiences with his artistic flair to produce art that inspires and delights.
The title of this new gallery is intentionally paradoxical and takes its meaning from one of its images, Relic. For someone or something, the relic on one of Saturn's moons was made in the past. But for us, finding such a relic may be well into the future. Yet it exists now and when we find it we will have to deal with its cosmological and theological implications.
