John Buxton

John Buxton. Art Renewal Center. Living Master

John Buxton's 31 years as a successful illustrator has evolved into these past 20 + years as an honored Fine Artist . Painting scenes inspired by the 18th century Wilderness Frontier. A frontier that influenced the development and relations of "The New World "; it's people and what would become a New Nation.

There have been many awards and accomplishments along his 55 year career. John's work is recognized in the Western Art genre. Perhaps because in the early years of European settlement ... the "West"...did not yet extend beyond the eastern mountain range or the Mississippi River. This allows his paintings to be exhibited at The Masters Of The American West Show at the Autry Museum each year. The Eiteljorg Museum of Indianapolis, also exhibits his paintings in it's Quest For The West Show annually.
