Bruce A. Blair

Bruce A. Blair

b. 1951

The son of two Western New York artists, Robert and Jeanette Blair, Bruce A. Blair has had a focused and successful career concentrating on watercolor landscapes. His body of work has always been interpreted as spontaneous but as his career progressed the landscapes became less objective. Because of this abstraction and continued spontaneity, his work has been called both impressionist and expressionist. After he attended art school at the Art Institute of Boston in 1972, his career was focused in Western New York. He has won numerous prizes in the area the Burchfield Penney Art Center holds one of his pieces in our collection.
