    Damon Carter was graduated from the University of Georgia with a BFA degree and began his career as an illustrator and graphic designer.

    Since that time the quality of his work has been recognized both locally and nationally. In 1989, he was a finalist in the Artist Magazine's National Portrait Contest from a field of over 10,000 entries, and in 2011 he was juried into the Oil Painters of America's National Show in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho.

    Among his numerous honors are two finalist certificates from the prestigious International Clio Awards.

The Recital

 

    Damon is a member of the Oil Painters of America, the Portrait Society of America and the Portrait Society of Atlanta. He is currently on the Board of Directors of the Portrait Society of Atlanta and served as president from 1993 to 1995. He is also a very active member of the Plein Air Painters of Georgia, where he paints on location as often as possible.

    During the last decade Damon's passion for portraiture and plein air painting has become his prime focus and he now devotes his energies full time as a fine artist.

    He believes a true artist never stops learning, and he constantly studies the works of the old masters in art museums, galleries, and his growing studio library.

    Damon loves the process of painting. He believes that Picasso said it best with this quote; "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life."
