ART GORE won national acclaim as a photographer who created his most celebrated works in Morrison, Colorado, where he became a master of the still life, capturing exquisite detail and evoking a fragile, trusting and less hurried past. He is also recognized as an accomplished author, poet and sculptor, with works on display in schools, universities, churches, hospitals, government agencies and businesses throughout the United States. He transcended the impediment of color blindness and has been an inspiration to others with sight afflictions.
Notables as diverse as former President Gerald Ford, Walter Cronkite, Andrew Wyeth and Judy Collins have purchased Gore's work for their personal collections. When seeking a photographer to document the President L.B.J. Texas Homestead, the First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson, commissioned Art Gore for the project. In 1983, then governor of Colorado, Richard D. Lamm, declared September 3rd Art Gore Day.
His photographic body of work remains a legacy of universal appeal. Reaching across time and cultural backgrounds, his images touch the human heart and mind, portraying the incidental and beautiful moments of daily life which enrich the fabric of existence and are often taken for granted until they have vanished.
