At the age of 23, Sisson had a solo exhibition at Vose Gallery in Boston. Over the course of his career, he has exhibited extensively including at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, DC, the National Academy of Design, the Allied Artists of America, the American Federation of the Arts traveling exhibition, the Cincinnati Art Museum, and the Portland Museum of Art, among others.

During the later part of his career, Sisson took his artistic talents to the Southwest where he is still currently producing fresh works.
