Augustus Goertz was born and raised in Greenwich Village, New York City. He received his education at La Guardia High School in NYC, at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA and eventually earned a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in San Francisco, CA, where he studied with Bruce Nauman, Jay Defeo and Wally Hedrick. Upon his return to New York City in the 70’s, he settled in the formerly artistic and intellectual environment of Soho, New York City, where he started exhibiting and soon joined Sarah Rentschler Gallery with a roster of- at that time- emerging artists of whom many are now well known, established artists such as John Ahearn, Stanley Boxer, Koki Doktori, Ronny Landfield, Peter Reginato and Billy Sullivan. He has continued to exhibit nationally and internationally ever since.
