Artist Biography

Jonathan grew up in Dillsburg PA, and was accepted into the Harrisburg Arts Magnet School his senior year. He went on to study at the Maryland Institute, College of Art, then to Kutztown University, where he received his BFA. He served 4 years in the Air Force before returning to the Harrisburg area where he has made his living as an artist and performing musician. He is often commissioned for pen & ink architectural renderings. He is primarily known for his vibrantly colored landscape paintings.

He is the youngest member of the Seven Lively Artists and was part of their 50 year retrospective exhibition at the Cumberland County Historical Society. He showed with them again in the summer of 2010 at the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Massachusetts, and the Pennsylvania Governor’s Residence.

His work has been exhibited at Gallery 30 in Gettysburg, F.A.N. Gallery in Philadelphia, the Art Association of Harrisburg, Artisans Gallery in Lancaster, and many others. He enjoyed international exposure when one of his Cape Cod paintings was published in the June/July 2009 issue of “International Artist” as a finalist in a world-wide competition. Another of his Cape paintings was in a Cape Cod Museum of Art advertisement in the July / August 2010 issue of “Fine Art Connoisseur”, also an international publication. Closer to home, he was the subject of a story in the January 2011 issue of “The ‘Burg Magazine”. He was included with the Seven Lively Artists in a January 2011 TV news segment and a main article in the March issue of “In Central Pennsylvania Magazine”, a Harrisburg Patriot News publication.

He has recently been focusing on plein air efforts on Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. Many of these oil paintings have been selected for inclusion in various regional juried exhibitions in the past 3 years. He recently had work chosen for the 2011 Juried show at Lebanon Valley College for the 4th consecutive year, and currently has a piece in the Doshi Juried show at the State Museum of Pennsylvania. Two Skylines are in the Cumberland Valley Juried Exhibition at the Washington County Museum of Fine Art in Hagerstown MD.

The Skyline series has been selected for solo exhibitions at the Montpelier Arts Center near Richmond VA in August of 2011 and the Delaplaine Visual Art Education Center in Frederick MD in December of 2011.

Artist Biography

Mark was born in Scranton on 7/15/77 and has lived in Dunmore all of his life. HeI graduated from Dunmore High School, 1995 Class Vice President. He gave the Benediction at Graduation, and then proceeded to Marywood University until 1998. Mark was an illustration major there, no degree, and rarely went to class until he lost interest altogether. He had begun showing a proclivity toward drawing while in high school and when it came time to pick a major for college he chose fine art because that was the only class I had A’s in.

Mark’s first experience with painting was at age 2, when he clearly recalls getting yelled at by his aunt for painting bugs on her wall with her nail polishes.

Artists that he was drawn to (pun intended) included Bosch, Klimt, Picasso, Escher, modernists, etc.

Mark never really had any faith in ever being anything more than an amateur artist until he heard Johnny’s interview last year on WVIA. Since then MarkI has kind of been reborn into an obsessive nut that rarely thinks about anything other than drawing and painting.
