Artist & Speaker Bios Elaine Adams

Elaine Adams combines her extensive background in art history, executive administration, and finance to provide a unique and personal approach to servicing artists and gallery clients. As the wife of artist Peter Adams, she has been actively involved in various capacities in the art industry. Because of her financial background, many collectors seek her advice and counsel before acquiring contemporary-traditional fine art.

Peter Adams

Since 1993, Peter Adams has served as president of the prestigious California Art Club, which was established in 1909 and is one of the largest and most active professional arts organizations in the country. Under his leadership, the club’s roster has grown from 80 members to nearly 3,000. Today, the California Art Club is recognized as a leading proponent of the current national traditional-realist art movement.

Ken Auster

Renowned for his classic surf art, Ken Auster now sees and paints a bold, dynamically changing world, whether it be London; Venice, Italy; San Francisco, Carmel, or the Napa Valley; or Baja, Mexico. He is a Signature Member of the California Art Club, the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association, and Oil Painters of America and a member of the PleinAir Painters of America. Auster’s work has been selected in numerous juried exhibitions.

Stefan Baumann

Stefan Baumann is the creator of the weekly PBS television series The Grand View: America’s National Parks Through the Eyes of an Artist, which promotes environmental awareness and outdoor painting. He studied art and architectural history on scholarship at Stanford University and worked as a

private painting teacher. After moving to San Francisco in 1980, he began Baumann Fine Art, an endeavor focused on landscape painting. Baumann has been featured in People magazine, and his work is included in the collections of the Rockefellers, Annenbergs, and former President Reagan. He also creates original works for Leanin’ Tree Publications.

Brian Blood

Brian Blood is recognized as one of California’s most important plein air impressionists. He began his career as a graphic artist and art director in Boston. Although Blood’s career was successful, he wanted to be a fine art painter. A move to California took him to the Academy of Art University in San Francisco for both undergraduate and graduate studies. He also taught at the Academy of Art University for 12 years. Blood creates hundreds of studies directly from nature, observing the ever-changing light of day. He uses these studies as the basis for his larger-scale works.

Al Bond

Al Bond is the Executive Director of the Avalon Foundation, an arts nonprofit based in Easton, Maryland. The Avalon Foundation produces Plein Air — Easton! Before working with the Avalon Foundation, Bond was the Economic Development Director for the Town of Easton.

Brenda Boylan

Award-winning artist Brenda Boylan began her creative career as a graphic designer in Oregon, designing for high-profile sportswear clients such as Nike, Adidas, Columbia Sportswear, and Avia. Boylan’s work as a fine art painter has earned her the distinction of Signature Membership in the Pastel Society of America and the Northwest Pastel Society. She enjoys the practice of plein air painting on location in organized West Coast plein air groups and events. Boylan is an

enthusiastic teacher of the pastel medium and volunteers her creative time with grade school art programs.

Ed S. Brickler

Carver currently divides her time between Austin, Texas, and Rico, Colorado. Recognition for her work has come quickly, and she has won numerous awards, including the Artists’ Choice award at the Laguna Beach Invitational and at Telluride in 2009, and at Plein Air — Easton! in 2008. She has participated in the prestigious Maynard Dixon Country event for four consecutive years, and is a highly regarded teacher.

Field Instructor Speaker or Demonstrator


Artist & Speaker Bios Scott L. Christensen

For Scott L. Christensen, plein air painting is a oneshot effort to understand what happens in nature. As vital as that process might be, the more daunting challenge is to use that under­standing to create well-orchestrated studio paintings. The landscape Scott returns to most often for inspiration is the vast, open space of the Western United States.

John D. Cogan

John Cogan paints the landscapes and wildlife of the American West. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University, then an M.A. and a Ph.D. in experimental physics from Rice University. In 1982 he left his corporate job to pursue painting full-time. Cogan participated in the Grand Canyon Association’s Plein Air on the Rim in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. In 2012, he won the Jack Dudley Memorial Fund Purchase Award, and his painting “Out of the Depths” will be a permanent part of the Grand Canyon’s collection. Cogan has paintings in numerous corporate and private collections.

John Cosby

John Cosby is a plein air impressionist known for bold use of color and energetic brush strokes. At 18, he became a communications advance man for President Nixon; he traveled the globe in that capacity through the Ford administration. When he returned to California, he began painting the sea and landscape. Cosby now lives and has a studio in Paso Robles, California, and works on location around the world. He was a founding board member of the prestigious Laguna Plein Air Painters Association and is a Signature Member of California Art Club. Cosby teaches workshops around United States and in Europe. Field Instructor Speaker or Demonstrator


John Crump

Renowned artist John Crump was born and raised in Wellington, New Zealand, and has had an avid interest in drawing, painting, and making things since early childhood. He worked as a graphic artist and then a schoolteacher until his painting hobby became a greater passion. There is never a shortage of subjects in the South Island of New Zea­­land, where he is surrounded by mountains, lakes, rivers, and bush. Crump enjoys taking groups of people out on painting treks.

Gil Dellinger

Californian Gil Dellinger is the current President of the Plein-Air Painters of America. He curated two major exhibitions at the Haggin Museum in Stockton, California, and is currently developing other traveling exhibitions of contemporary artwork.

Don Demers

Don Demers was born in 1956 in the rural community of Lunenburg, Massachusetts. He attended the School of the Worcester Art Museum and the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. His maritime experience came about as a crewmember aboard traditional sailing vessels, and he remains an avid sailor. Demers began his career as an illustrator and expanded into fine art, and his paintings have been featured in a number of publi­cations. Demers’ landscapes have garnered him awards at the Laguna Plein Air Invitational, and he received an award for his painting at the 2007 Crystal Cove Invitational.

M. Stephen Doherty

M. Stephen Doherty earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from Cornell University; taught art in public schools, colleges, and workshops; worked for an art-materials manufacturer; served as editor-in-chief of American Artist magazine for 31 years; and is now editor of PleinAir magazine.

Michelle Dunaway

Michelle Dunaway credits her mother’s creative influence and her upbringing in Alaska for fueling her artistic imagination. Dunaway moved to New Mexico as a teenager and studied at Art Masters Academy with Lou Maestas, then attended the prestigious Art Center College of Design in California. In her mid-20s she lived on the East Coast and sought out the instruction of such masters as Morgan Weistling and Jeremy Lipking. Dunaway has taught at the California Art Institute in Westlake Village and at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art. Her paintings and drawings have been featured in Art of the West magazine, American Art Collector magazine, and other publications.

Kathleen Dunphy

Kathleen Dunphy began her career displaying coloredpencil dog portraits in coffee shops and veterinary clinics in Eagle River, Alaska. Today she exhibits her oil paintings in galleries across the U.S. In 2000, she was awarded a full scholarship at the prestigious Academy of Art University in San Francisco; she maintains strong ties to the academy, where she has been offered a faculty appointment. Her honors include Best of Show from the American Impressionist Society, an Award of Excellence from Oil Painters of America, and five California Art Club Gold Medal Shows. In 2012, Dunphy was honored with Signature Membership in the prestigious Plein-Air Painters of America.

Aaron Foppe

Aaron Foppe is an oil painter and marketing manager for Bristle Magic Paintbrush Cleaner.

Guido Frick

Guido Frick is truly an outdoor painter. The German-born artist lives half of the year in Europe and travels the other half almost exclusively through America’s western

Artist & Speaker Bios states. In the early 1980s he met with famous instructor and painter Sergei Bongart, and still considers this his most influential experience as a painter. Frick was published in Maler sehen den Bodensee. in 1980 won the prestigeous Prix de Salon in ­Fontainbleau-Paris.

George Gallo

George Gallo began painting at age 3 and became enamored of landscape painting while still in grade school. As an adult, after ceasing painting for some years to pursue his career in film, Gallo wrote the screenplay for the film Midnight Run. He began painting again, and contacted Grand Central Art Galleries Manager John Evans, whom he had met when Evans was a gallery salesman. Evans was moved to give Gallo a one-man show. Through an introduction from a friend, Gallo then met Richard Schmid, who offered critiques and assistance. Gallo today counts artist David Leffel as his best friend.

Scott Gellatly

When Scott Gellatly paints during the 2nd Annual Plein Air Convention & Expo, he will offer the benefits of his experience as both an accomplished painter and an expert on artists’ materials. That’s because, in addition to being an exhibiting artist, he is a Product Manager for Gamblin Artist’s Oil Colors, the Bronze Level Sponsor and maker of the Official Oil Paint of the convention.

Ulrich Gleiter

Ulrich Gleiter is taking America by storm, winning awards in events nationwide. His bold, impressionistic style is one rarely seen outside Russia. This German-born artist studied at the Dresden Academy and later the Russian Academy’s Repin Institute in St. Petersburg.

Michael Godfrey

“When something I see or hear is breathtakingly beautiful and spiritually moving, I feel the presence

of God and have the desire to respond,” says Michael Godfrey. That need to respond is most likely to happen when the Maryland artist discovers dramatic lighting effects in nature.

Pierre Guidetti

Pierre Guidetti is CEO and co-owner of SavoirFaire, a global importer and distributor of art and stationery supplies. He has shared his experience in the fine art industry by giving lectures in art schools and mu­ seums, including the National Gallery in Washington, Yale University, the Art Institute of Chicago, and San Francisco’s Academy of Art University. He has worked in the United States with such artists as David Hockney and Wayne Thiebaud. He is a member of the French-Ameri­can Chamber of Commerce and has been a consultant toward reaching a better understanding of the French-American vision.

James Gurney

James Gurney is the author and illustrator of the Dinotopia books, and also a dedicated plein air painter. He has a degree in anthropology from the University of California at Berkeley. Gurney’s illustration career included assignments from National Geographic to paint reconstructions of ancient civilizations. He was inspired by that research to create a series of “lost world” paintings, and Dinotopia: A Land Apart from Time was published in 1992. Solo exhibitions of Gurney’s artwork have been presented at the Smithsonian, the Norton Museum of Art, and other venues. His book Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter was Amazon’s bestselling book on painting for over 52 weeks.

Charlie Hunter

Charlie Hunter is a gifted plein air painter whose art depicts what nature does to what man creates; his goal is to paint beautifully what is generally not considered beautiful. As Hunter grew up in rural New Hampshire and Vermont, his father’s small print shop exposed him early

While pursuing a B.F.A. at the School of Visual Arts in New York, Joseph Paquet had the good fortune of finding a mentor in figure artist John Foote. Paquet later met another major influence in his life, John Osborne, a uniquely gifted artist and teacher. Osborne believed a landscape painting should begin on location, but that its poetic essence should be completed in the solitude of the studio. While that taught Paquet to fuse field studies with the image he saw in his mind’s eye, he now creates mostly from life, believing that the direct correspondence with nature increases the potential for greater feeling.

His father, Julio, is an award-winning wildlife artist and his older brother, Greg, is a professional illustrator.

He likes to paint subjects directly, using as much natural light as possible, rather than copying from photographs.

Her approach to painting is influenced by that of her teacher Henry Hensche (18991992) and his teacher Charles Hawthorne (1872-1903). She is quick to point out that her methods of teaching and painting are somewhat different than others associated with their school, the Cape School of Art in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

Lori Putnam

“I knew after taking my first oil painting class in 1997 and then participating in several painting workshops a few years later that becoming a full-time painter would be the most fulfilling thing I could do in the next chapter of my life,” says Tennessee artist Lori Putnam. “When my husband, Mark, and I finally decided to begin that new chapter, people thought we were crazy, but we reached a point ... when the only viable option was to work hard at achieving our dreams.”

Techniques of the Hudson River School Masters™

alexey steele portrait techniques of the russian masterstm

When the world was seduced by Modernism, the Russians were preserving and promoting age-old techniques, as well as developing a style of their own. Trained in Moscow at the world-renowned Surikov Cosby_CoverFIN.indd Institute of the Russian Academy — considered the finest art school in the world — artist Alexey Steele studied under the top masters. Fewer than 20 students are accepted annually into the Surikov Institute, after they exhaustively demonstrate their proficiency as artists. Steele, the son of renowned Russian master Leonid Steele, became a master in his own right and today wields his influence from his Los Angeles studio. Steele is not only a brilliant artist, but a colorful and exuberant defender and leader of the new realism movement.
