Artist Biography;

Gene Gill was an established artist in the Los Angeles area. Born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1933, he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from The Chouinard Art Institute (California Institute of the Arts) and has exhibited widely in the Los Angeles area since 1970.

He spent most of his career as both an artist and an art teacher. In 1975 Reseda High became the first school in the LA City School District to offer Advanced Placement, Studio Art with Gene Gill as the teacher. He started teaching Art at Reseda in 1968 after spending five years teaching art at Gardena High School. He would remain at Reseda until his retirement in 1988. At Reseda, Gill developed his own art program where "select" senior art students were able to work more independently and use materials not available to an entire class. When the "Gifted" adviser at Reseda came to him in 1974, about the possibility of offering a new Advanced Placement class in art, he immediately put the program into the art curriculum.

His work has ranged from paintings to mixed media and three dimensional architectural renderings or models. He is listed in Davenports Art Reference and Price Guide, Who Was Who in American Art. He is also listed on the Askart.com and Artprice.com websites. http://www.askart.com/askart/artist.aspx?artist=11000091 His paintings and graphics are included in the permanent collections of The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Palm Springs Desert Museum, and the Container Corporation of America, Atlantic Richfield Corporation, the Northrop Corporation, Home Savings, and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

After the late 1940s, Landry began a serious painting career and started exhibiting fine art watercolors. His paintings often depicted regional subjects with buildings, boats or coastline structures. Creating a mood was important to him and gives his works a narrative quality.
