Biography


 

 
Blair Atherholt never needed any encouragement to draw. Throughout his early childhood and into adolescence, he steadily filled numerous sketchbooks with pencil sketches. This growing love of creating led to his enrollment into the Schuler School of Fine Arts in 2011, after graduating high school, in pursuit of learning the techniques and disciplines of the Old Masters. The life works of Hans Schuler, Sr. (1874-1951) and Jacques Maroger (1884-1962) and their dedication to excellence in art represent the hallmark of the Schuler School and its mission in training students of the school. Atherholt graduated the four year Schuler program and emerged in 2015 with one goal: to pursue a career as a fine artist. 
 
 Now at 29 years old, Atherholt is focused upon traditional still life painting made distinctively his own with contemporary, imaginative subject matter. He strives with each new painting to improve his control of the medium, one measured brushstroke at a time. He currently maintains a studio and gallery space in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
 
His work has been included in multiple national shows and international publications. Most recently, he received an Award of Excellence in the Oil Painters of America 2021 Salon, American Art Collector Editors Choice Award in the International Guild of Realism's 15th Annual Exhibition, as well as an Award of Excellence in the OPA Wet Paint Competition. He was also awarded 2nd Place in the Artists Magazine Annual Art Competition: Still Life + Interiors, as well as the Windows to the Divine Award in the Art Renewal Center's 14th International Salon. He also received the Realism Award of Excellence in the Oil Painters of America 28th National Juried Exhibition, as well as the Best Still Life Award in the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society's Best of America Small Works Exhibition. Previously, he was also honored to be a featured artist [...]
