Participating Artists - Ed Buckley
Glasgow artist Ed Buckley was originally influenced and overwhelmed by the works of Chesley Bonestell in the early 1950s. He began to teach himself to paint just after Sputnik in 1957, trying water-colour, gouache, oils, (even house paint -- although that ruined the brushes!) before eventually settling on acrylic paints as his preferred medium.
Ed produced little art during his years working as a bus conductor in Glasgow, but his interested was revived when he switched to a job as a Security Attendant in the City's municipal galleries. This exposed him to the many works of art on display -- and he also discovered SF Conventions and of course their Art Shows.
Ed really began to paint in earnest only after his retirement -- when he found the spare time! He is still learning and improving his art - the works you seen on display in Reno are the result.
Note: Ed Buckley will be exhibiting as a mail-in artist in the Renovation Art Show and will not be at the convention in person.
