A graduate of Northeast Louisiana State University with a Bachelors degree and New Mexico Highlands University with a Masters in Art Hogan studied with Edward Schutz and Elmer Schooley both exceptional landscape painters.
"At Northeast Schutz introduced me to Nature as subject matter and gave me the opportunity for the first time to immerse myself in a variety of visual media that seemed to have limitless possibilities. It was Shutz, also a Highlands University graduate, who suggested I go to New Mexico to study with his old mentor Elmer Schooley. My interest in the patterns found in nature are a direct result of Dr. Schooleys influence. In the 1960s Schooley introduced us to the work of Pierre Bonnard which opened up a whole new paradigm about the nature of color and light."
Hogan taught art at the University of Texas at El Paso where he became deeply involved in both drawing and printmaking techniques that have merged in many ways with his painting. Since the 1970s Hogan has exhibited widely throughout the Southwest as well as abroad.
Hogan has work in the Santa Fe Museum of Art, The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indian and Western Art in Indianapolis, Indiana and is represented in many private and corporate collections.
Glenn Green Galleries has exhibited John Hogan’s artwork since the 1960’s.
