Blair Atherholt

Blair Atherholt’s journey as an artist began long before he even considered it a career. From the earliest days of childhood, he found solace and joy in sketching, filling countless sketchbooks with drawings fueled by both imagination and keen observation.   In 2011, Atherholt took a decisive step forward in his artistic pursuits by enrolling in the Schuler School of Fine Arts. Immersed in the study of techniques and disciplines of the Old Masters, he found inspiration in the life works of figures like Hans Schuler, Sr. and Jacques Maroger, whose dedication to excellence in visual art became the guiding light of the Schuler School’s mission. Graduating from the rigorous four-year program in 2015, Atherholt emerged with a clear goal: to pursue a career as a fine artist.   Now, at 31 years old, Atherholt’s focus lies primarily on traditional still life painting. Combining traditional techniques with contemporary subject matter, he endeavours with each new painting to hone his mastery of the medium, one brushstroke at a time.   Atherholt’s talent and dedication have not gone unnoticed. His work has been featured in multiple national shows and international publications, including International Artist Magazine, where his demonstration article “Precision in Painting” graced the cover of issue #134. He has received numerous accolades and awards, including the Best Still Life Award in the 2021 NOAPS Best of America Exhibition and an Award of Excellence in the Oil Painters of America 2021 Salon.   From the prestigious American Art Collector Editor’s Choice Award to the Realism Award of Excellence in the Oil Painters of America 28th National Juried Exhibition, Atherholt’s achievements underscore his growing influence in the art world. His work can be found in numerous public and private collections, a testament to the enduring appeal and impact of his artistry.   For those captivated by the captivating allure of realism in still life painting, Blair Atherholt’s portfolio offers an immersive journey into a realm of imagination and wonder.

“In my artistic journey, I find myself drawn to the timeless allure of traditional still life painting. Each painting becomes a canvas for experimentation, a space where I can push the boundaries of my creativity while honouring the rich traditions of the past. With every brushstroke, I strive to improve my control of the medium, seeking precision and mastery in every detail. It is a journey of continuous growth and refinement, where each stroke is a deliberate step towards achieving my artistic vision. Through my work, I aim to evoke a sense of beauty and wonder, inviting viewers to pause and contemplate the subtleties of the world around them. In the delicate balance between tradition and innovation, I find endless inspiration and endless possibilities” – Blair Atherholt
