Collection Item
Born in East Haven, Connecticut of a working class family, John McClusky attended the experimental Ohlm''s School of Fine Arts in New Haven. The apprenticeship-style program launched him into a career which blended commercial projects and studio painting. Deciding in the 1960s to devote himself full-time to fine art, he chose to move his family to Fredericksburg, Texas, where in 1971 he founded the Fredericksburg Art Guild. In paintings like "Morning Glory," he captures the often-overlooked beauty around us in neo-realistic style, imbuing the commonplace with the grandeur of fine art painting.
