Arthur Beery, Ohio Artist, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Fine Arts.
Mr. Beery is a celebrated painter, and has pursued the beauty of the curve for 44 years. He is well known for the “Mobius” series, juxtaposing the familiar mathematical shape against well-known American cityscapes, and is the creator of three paintings now placed in permanent collection of the Columbus Museum of Fine Art. Mr. Beery writes for his web page, “Since nature creates the Beauty of Flowers, by the use of Curves and Colors, I humbly attempt with Human deficiency, as an Artist with the best of my ability, to paint with verve, Beauty with Color and Curve!”
Born to Oscar O. Beery and Fern Rachel Beery in Marion, Ohio, Mr. Beery served with the U.S. Navy from 1950 to 1954, and has been making fine art since he started producing murals for the U.S. Navy Minecraft Base in Charleston, South Carolina. He has been exhibited extensively in both America and across the world, from the E.J. Thomas Performing Arts Hall in Ohio’s own University of Akron, to the Galerie Cernuschi in Paris, France. Notably, he was an exhibitor with the 23rd Grand Prix in Deauville, France, in 1972, and in 2015 he contributed paintings to the Ohio State Fair Exhibition. Mr. Beery was a featured artist with the 2016 Ohio Permanent Collection, and he has given back as a contributor and donor of the Marion County Ohio Historical Society.
Frequently illustrating themes familiar to many home-grown Americans, Mr. Beery has been awarded numerous honors for his many years in pursuit of beauty. He won an early 1971 Watercolor U.S.A. Award, and was presented with a 1985 Oscar D’Italia Award from the Academy Italia. In 2004, Mr. Beery won Best of Show at the Newam Open National Show, and in 2011 he was presented a Professional Award at the Ohio State Fair. Mr. Beery has been married twice, first to Dolores J. Miller, who passed away in 1984, and then to Norma Beery in 1985, who is also deceased. He has two daughters, Linda Beery Hindman and Laura Johnson.
