John Beerman is a master of painting the American countryside. As a student of the school of the great Hudson River landscape painters, light is the presiding presence in his work. His guileless wonder produces some of the most memorable views of nature’s serene beauty. Peaceful, almost dreamlike scenes float off the medium surface, delivered with technical mastery and self-evident care. He delivers visual and emotional findings to the viewer, characterized by the full power of nature and devoid of human intervention.
Beerman has exhibited at David Beitzel, NYC; Tibor de Nagy, NYC; Somerhill Gallery, Chapel Hill NC; Hudson River Museum, Yonkers NY; as well as at a select few premier galleries across the country. His work has been acquired by the collections of Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC; Brooklyn Museum, NYC; Center for Contemporary Art, Cleveland OH; Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland OH; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis MN; Farnsworth Museum, Rockland ME; Neuberger Museum, Purchase NY: GE; Time Warner; Chase Manhattan Bank; and Chemical Bank.
