George A. Marks, Jr. is a New England painter well known for his impressionistic landscapes and sporting art. He maintains studios in Chatham, MA in the summer and Needham, MA in the winter. Largely self-taught, although admittedly influenced by early New England impressionism, he works primarily in oil and acrylic on canvas. Over the years, the artist has worked to support his art in a variety of ways including seasonal hunting and flyfishing guide, trapper, estate caretaker, state porcupine bounty hunter and government tree farm worker.
As an avid fly fisherman and outdoorsman, he finds a special inspiration in the rivers, ponds and wetlands of his native New England. The recipient of numerous awards for both painting and drawing, his work is included in many private and corporate collections both in this country and abroad and appears regularly in Gray’s Sporting Journal. He is represented in the Boston area by J. Todd Galleries of Wellesley, Renjeau Galleries of Natick and Concord, Florentine Gallery in Weston, MA and on Cape Cod by Kendall Art Gallery in Wellfleet.
