EDUCATION

John Horejs began painting in 1973. His art education has been acquired through self-directed, independent study. He has studied with Sergei Bongart, Michael Lynch, Jim Wilcox and Olaj Moller.

STYLE

John works exclusively in oils. His style is a blend of realism and impressionism. He uses many of the techniques of the Impressionists, but applies them in a more controlled, realistic manner. Favorite subject matters include wildflowers and gardens, western mountain and desert landscapes, and skyscapes. He also enjoys painting seascapes and harbor scenes inspired by journeys to the west coast.

All Horejs’ works are gallery wrapped box canvases which are designed to be hung unframed. (They may of course be restretched and framed or framed in deep shadow box moldings).

John’s palette consists of only seven colors and white. From these basic hues he creates a kaleidoscope of rich, wonderful color that has become his trademark over the years.

EXHIBITIONS

John Horejs paintings have been exhibited in national juried exhibitions including the 1983 and 1985 Annual National April Salon, Springville Museum of Art.
