Amery Bohling is an award-winning artist whose work vividly portrays the enduring strength of the West’s landscapes while skillfully capturing its light. The combination is old world and new West and provides a contemporary perspective of traditional western landscapes often featuring the life living within that landscape. Naturally drawn to the art world and outdoor adventure, Bohling pursues the fine art of landscape painting, preferring remote, rugged and often complex terrains for her subjects. Amery’s appreciation of the environment comes from “a desire to paint the landscape in its natural state and to preserve these beautiful locations for others to enjoy and future artists to visit.”
She obtained a fine arts degree from University of Arizona, which included a year abroad at the Marchutz School of Art in Aix en Provence, France, where she pursued a more formal art education. While in France, she studied plein air landscape under the tradition of French impressionists. In addition, Bohling studied at the Scottsdale Artists School where she received a strong foundation from skilled instructors.
Awards include: Best in Show at the Scottsdale Beaux Arts 2010 Instructor’s Exhibition, the Alden Bryan Memorial Medal for traditional landscape painting at the Allied Artists of America Fall 2008 Exhibition in New York and their 2007 John Young Hunter Memorial Award. In April 2006, she received the Emerging Artist Award at the California Art Club’s 95th Annual Gold Medal Show sponsored by American Artist Magazine. She was awarded a scholarship from Stanley R and Robert Wright Foundation for the Arts.
