Home again: Potsdam artist comes full circle

Artist Matthew Rauscher grew up in Potsdam, earned a Fine Arts degree from SUNY Potsdam and soon found himself underemployed. He took a job at a local coffeehouse and often wondered, "What now?" He says it was fate that led him to graduate school at William Paterson University in New Jersey. A few years later, the 28-year old had two art degrees under his belt and entered the job market just as the economy fizzled. So did the plan to follow his heart to Alabama. Without a job, Rauscher moved back to his parents' house in Potsdam and began volunteering at Creative Spirit Community Art Center. Rauscher says the return to his roots has rekindled his creativity.
