Atrium Gallery - George Boutwell

POSTED: Monday, January 2, 2023

George Boutwell is our Atrium Gallery artist featured in January to begin 2023.As a self-taught artist, Boutwell has been plying his artistic talents for 51 years  and managed to support his family of, wife Martha and two children, during that time specifically from his artistic talents.  With his lack of funds, Boutwell was unable to afford art lessons and then poor grades limited furthering his education, so he utilized the public library and read every art book available.  At one point he practiced his art by doing 100 sketches every day for one year. Over the years he has worked in a number of art related jobs including technical illustrator and art director for Texas Highways Magazine, printing companies and advertising agencies. Boutwell does not limit himself to only one genre of art, but does limit the scope of his work to Texas. Able to finally take art lessons through a correspondence course in fine art, he transitioned to full-time fine artist in 1973. 

George and Martha live outside of Clifton at Highview, their 1904 Victorian home, featured in some of George’s artwork.  His hobbies and interests include historic preservation, old cars, fossil hunting, wildlife observation, and Longhorn cattle.  The Boutwells moved to the Clifton area in 1986.

Boutwell’s art will be on display 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and at other times during BAC events.  Don’t miss George Boutwell’s special art exhibit during the month of January in the Atrium Gallery, which also includes  reception on January 18 from 4 to 7 p.m.
