About Graydon Foulger
Graydon has been involved in art as long as he can remember – drawing as a kid, taking art classes all through school, graduating from Brigham Young University in Utah with a BFA in painting and sculpture in 1967. He then studied in a master of fine art program and taught art as a graduate assistant. In 1966, Graydon studied with the European Art Academy, which provided him the opportunity to learn in many of the museums and galleries throughout Europe. In addition, he has studied with several prominent artists.
Co-founding Tivoli Art Gallery in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1968, Graydon spent fifteen years marketing art, teaching classes, jurying art shows and was active in the art scene in Utah, California and elsewhere. He feels the many facets of the gallery experience were very beneficial to his career as an artist.
Graydon resides in Utah, a state he enjoys painting for its diversity. He relishes plein-aire painting (on site) in all weather conditions, yet equally enjoys the challenges of studio work. His interest in a wide variety of subjects is served by traveling extensively in the U.S., South America and Europe. Graydon’s goal is to paint competent, honest, interesting paintings ranging from the subtle rendering to the colorful impasto.
His works are in many private, corporate, public and museum collections and have shown in numerous art shows, receiving many awards. They’ve also been published in several magazines and books.
