About the Artist:
James G. Davis was born in Springfield, Missouri in 1931. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (1959) and his Master of Fine Arts degree (1962) from Wichita State University. Davis retired as Professor Emeritus from the University of Arizona in 1990 to devote full time to his painting and exhibition schedule. His paintings are in many museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Hershhorn Museum and National Gallery in Washington D.C.
The artist's style of portraying his observations of the world around him has yielded a body of work both provocative and beautiful.
Davis spends most of his time working in his studio in Oracle, Arizona. He also maintains studios in the mountains of Colorado, and also by the sea in Nova Scotia, Canada
