Down Mexico Way, Oil on Canvase, 19 1/2" x 15 1/4" ©
Born in Atlanta, Georgia, John Moyers became a noted painter of western subjects. He was raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico and was exposed to fine art from an early age because his father, Bill Moyers, was a professional painter and sculptor.
John attended the Laguna Beach School of Art and the California Institute for the Arts on a Walt Disney Studios scholarship. He worked briefly as an animation cartoonist in California and then went to British Columbia where he painted wild animals with Robert Lougheed. There he met Terri Kelly, his wife and well-known artist, and they settled in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In 1994, he was elected to membership in the Cowboy Artists of America.
John Moyers won two gold medals at the 37th Annual (2002) Cowboy Artists of America Sale and Exhibition at the Phoenix Art Museum. One gold medal was for his oil on linen " White Man's Leftovers" and the second medal was awarded for an ink on paper entitled "Making Time."
