John Williams


John Williams of Brush has been deeply involved in art since the early ‘80s when he earned an associates’ degree in art at Red Rocks Community College. He produces many landscapes, drawing from the travel he and his wife have taken to variety of places from Alaska to Africa. He works in both acrylics and oils, starting with oils and working with acrylics before coming back to oils.
Williams appreciates the art of Robert Batement, a style that is “abstract realism.” One of Williams’ main pieces at the art show is a tulip done in a Georgia O’Keefe style.
