John Clendening

John Clendening was taught art by Edmund Archer at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C. He worked at the Smithsonian for 36 years as a senior designer and later was the chief of design at the National Air & Space Museum.

John’s achievements include being appointed an official combat artist for the United States Marine Corps during the Vietnam War. In 1973 he was selected to draw and paint his impressions of the Apollo 16 flight to the moon. More recently he was commissioned by NASA to create a painting of the MIR-Shuttle rendezvous, which was published in the book NASA and the Exploration of Space. This painting is on exhibit in the visitor center at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. His work was selected by an art jury to be included in the staff artist exhibition for the Smithsonian Institution’s 150th National Birthday Celebration. He has also had many solo exhibits and has won many awards at juried group exhibitions.



Gregory Deane

Gregory Deane is a visual virtuoso whose every brushstroke breathes passion. “I strive for energy and generosity,” the artist says. He applies paint generously, uses color vividly, and his lines give a sense of movement that overflows with poetic emotion. “I cannot remember a time in my life when I haven’t been drawing or playing with molding clay, painting, or creating.”

“The emotion in my work often comes from somewhere deep down, and can speak to the inner part of each person,” Deane believes. “I have certain things in mind when I create each piece, perhaps the emotion of joy or tranquillity when I choose my colors, or perhaps the influence of the Orient or an obscure European tradition when I layer in bits of paper or gold leaf. This art is new, but tradition is frequently there too.”

Gregory Deane has been influenced by Paul Jenkins’ magnificent use of color. He also admires Robert Rauschenberg and Franz Kline. His paintings now grace many private and corporate collections. He has exhibited in many major galleries throughout the United States.
