John Beerman

John Beerman is a landscape painter and North Carolina native. Through his keen observation of light, form and color, filtered through his own subtle imagination, John’s landscapes offer a unique vision of time and place. His work is reminiscent of the Luminist school, yet thoroughly contemporary in its vision. He chooses his subjects not for their beauty, but for relationships to light and form, which have palpable emotional resonance for the painter and the viewer. To contemplate a Beerman landscape is to be invited into reverence for ordinary beauty rendered with extraordinary skill and vision.

Born and raised in Greensboro, NC, John spent much of his career in the Hudson River Valley of New York. He now lives and works in Durham, NC and paints in the South and Southwest. His more recent landscapes range from the Piedmont and Grandfather Mountain to the Atlantic beaches in North Carolina, the South Carolina low country, Texas, New Mexico, and Tuscany.

John recieved his degree from Rhode Island School of Design and was chosen to attend the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. His 35-year career has garnered recognition at the highest levels of fine art. His work is in the collection of numerous museums across the country, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC; the Whitney Museum of American Art, NYC; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and in the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh. Among other public collections, his work is at the Duke University Cancer Center, the Duke Endowment and the North Carolina Governor’s mansion. John also painted an 85-foot mural for the Milstein Family Heart Center at New York Presbyterian Hospital.
