Christopher Fitzgerald is a first-generation college graduate from the Northwest where he attended Western Washington University. He received a B.A. in art (1999), studied drawing and painting at Capodimonte Museum Naples, Italy (1999), trained in sculpture and video at Yale University School of Art (2008), and then attained his M.F.A. from Penn State University.

A prolific practicing artist, Fitzgerald has shown in over 50 group exhibitions throughout North America. Noted by Austin Chronicle visual arts writer Rachel Koper as one of her "favorite individual artists of 2004" and "favorite artists by body of work in 2005", Fitzgerald was shortlisted for Austin Museum of Art's 22-To-Watch exhibition (2005), the Arthouse Texas Prize (2006), and as a finalist for the Hunting Art Prize (2014). In 2015, his paintings were featured in the New American Paintings publication. Recent commissioned work has included paintings for diverse spaces - a hacienda in Mexico, the Big Ten Headquarters in Chicago, Seattle's Westin hotel and the new Presidential Suite at the Hyatt Times Square.

Fitzgerald delights in the student and faculty camaraderie of Concordia University. While Texas is home, his approach to painting has resulted in guest lectures at the University of Alberta in Edmonton Canada, Wells College in Aurora New York, Seattle Pacific University in Seattle Washington, Olympic College in Bremerton Washington, St. Mary Cathedral in Austin, and the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton Texas. He loves teaching art and art history at Concordia University Texas and is excited to meet students taking their first art class and students pursuing careers and degrees with a foundation in art.
