Juror: Russ Recchion

Russell Recchion’s paintings can be found in collections in Europe and across the United States. He has painted professionally for more than thirty years.

Recchion grew up just outside Pittsburgh. As an elementary school student, he attended the highly regarded Tam O’Shanter art classes at the Carnegie Museum. He graduated in 1974 from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and began a career as an advertising artist. During his time at the institute, a semester abroad in Italy convinced him he wanted to be a painter.

Since moving to Arizona with his family in 2000, Recchion continues to accept portrait commissions from institutions and families across America. The American Southwest, however, has captured his imagination, and he has developed an impressive portfolio of paintings depicting desert landscapes, cowboys, and Native Americans.
