Ryan Pierce received his MFA from California College of the Arts in 2007, and a BFA from Oregon College of Art and Craft in 2003. His work has been shown nationally and internationally, including solo exhibitions at Elizabeth Leach Gallery (Portland, OR), Nine Gallery (Portland, OR) and at Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder (Trondheim, Norway). His work has also been shown in group exhibitions at the Schneider Museum of Art (Ashland, OR), STREAM Gallery (New York, NY), the Henry Art Gallery (Seattle, WA) and at Irvine Contemporary (Washington, DC). In 2019, Pierce was selected to participate in the inaugural exhibition of the Portland Art Museum's regional triennial titled the map is not the territory.

By Oregon Arts Watch:

"A local artist whose concern for our environment runs deep, Pierce co-founded a wilderness retreat program for artists, encouraging others to engage with the land and life that surrounds us. In his large-scale paintings, he mixes still-life with landscape in a style that is simultaneously expressive and illustrative. These images of the plasticity and perseverance of the natural world are a much appreciated perspective on our current ecological crises, and his solo show of new work should not be missed."
