Interests and Personality

BiographyAnthony J. Petchkis is a Boston based landscape artist who has been exhibiting continuously for the past 30 years. Anthony continues to be inspired by the great American masters of the Hudson River School, his individual vision is unique in his choice and application of medium. Mastering pastel on rag board or paper, which is painted not drawn to create a homogeneous finish, which can be perceived as almost photographic. With the collaboration of Fine Art Impressions, Anthony is self-publishing and now has available limited edition fine art giclee’ prints. This new and exciting medium most closely emulates the original pastel far better than past methods of fine art printing. To keep this exclusive and unique, Anthony has chosen to keep his editions to seventy-five. As with his predecessors, Anthony hopes that through his art he can inspire his viewers to the awe and beauty of paradise that is the Great American Landscape.

Hi! Listen, I have about 6 months to prepare for my first solo show, and I was hoping you could assist me. I will need to have at least 30 paintings to display. If you could, with as much honesty as possible, please name 2 of my completed pieces that you feel I should definitely show. Also, please share 3 things with me, based on my current work, (remember be honest), that you would recommend to me for improving my art in general. I am fine if you post this on my public board because it may be interesting to others. The feedback from other artist on this website is very valuable to me. Thanks! ~Marianne
