Gary Taneri
Portraits: Narratives in Context

February 22 through Saturday, March 14, 2015


Gary Taneri has been painting since 1977 when he entered the Ohio State University as a Fine Art major. His major eventually changed to Architecture and after 4 years at Ohio State he enrolled at Youngstown State University as an Engineering major. In 1984 he received a Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering. While working as a Civil Engineer in Florida and Ohio he continued to paint and show his work in local museums and galleries including The Butler Institute of American Art and The Trumbull Art Gallery. He studied with painter and sculptor Csaba Kur during the 1990s when he first painted portraits. He spent many years painting Plein-air which has sharpened his skills of observation and developed his painterly style. In 2009 he started graduate school online and went on to earn his MFA from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California in 2011. He has been showing his paintings in a number of local, regional and national shows, winning awards and public acclaim. In 2013 he became an adjunct professor at the University of Mount Union in Alliance, Ohio. Gary currently lives and paints in Warren, Ohio.
