Gary Ozias

Although born in Kansas City, Missouri in 1947, Gary Ozias spent most of his early years in rural Massachusetts.  He is a retired language arts teacher who has always been interested in painting and other visual arts since he was a young boy.  He graduated from Worcester State College in Massachusetts in 1969, taught for a brief period on the East Coast and then moved to Downs, Kansas.

“I enjoy painting the natural world whether the subjects are landscapes, seascapes, skyscapes, or wildlife.  I love the outdoors and spend time observing its moods. There is nothing better than to be outside painting on fresh, breezy days, and I am thankful for the opportunity to do something that I enjoy so much. If I can capture the mystery of foggy mornings, the essence of hot, summer evenings, or the sunrise on new snow, I consider it a success. Every painting is a new challenge and tends to keep one humble. My goal is simply to be absolutely the best painter I can possibly be and let my work speak for itself. I hope others enjoy the results as much as I do the process.”

Artist Gary Ozias has been painting full time for more than 20 years.

Gary's father, Stanley, was a master engraver and gave Gary much of his early encouragement and training. After putting his art aside for a number of years, he picked it up again in the early 1970’s, and has been drawing and painting ever since. He began his professional art career in Kansas by opening the Prairie Wind Art Gallery and Studio in 1983, but he continued to devote most of his energies to his teaching until his retirement in 2001. Since then, he has painted full time, both outdoors and in the studio.

Gary has won numerous awards and recognitions for his painting. His work hangs in public and private collections from coast to coast in the United States and also in other countries. The artist has worked in a variety of media, including pastels, oil, watercolor, and pencil, as well as pen and ink.  His work is representational, but also includes a painterly touch. Gary loves to capture the essence and feel of the weather conditions which envelop a landscape, and he paints subjects ranging from landscapes to wildlife. 

Gary considers himself fortunate to be able to paint full time, and is hoping his artwork will find people who enjoy the finished works as much as he does creating each piece.

Gary is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod, Pastel Society of New Hampshire, Pastel Society of Colorado, Connecticut Pastel Society, PaintAmerica Association and a Master Signature Pastelist of the MidAmerica Pastel Society. He is also a Juried Artist Member of the storied North Shore Arts Association in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
