Timothy Horn - Archive

Timothy Horn is making his debut at Holton Studio Gallery in this year’s iteration of Beloved California, our annual all-gallery show.

Timothy Horn was born and raised in the small town of Yellow Springs, Ohio, and graduated from the Cooper Union School of Art in New York City with a focus in graphic design. After finishing school, he worked at several design firms in New York before moving to San Francisco, where he continued to work as a designer. When he first moved to the Bay Area, he explored with wild abandon the natural beauty of the nearby open spaces and was struck by the intensity of the light and the variety of landscapes in the region. Horn took his first painting class at this time, followed by another, and within a year he knew he had found his calling. He began painting more and more, and doing less and less graphic design until the fall of 2006 when he closed his design business entirely.

Tim now paints full-time and lives in the the small town of Fairfax where he is drawn to the everyday scenes of the rural areas in Marin and Sonoma Counties—the old buildings that have evaded development, the workings of ranch life, the old cars and trucks that continue on, or sometimes simply the play of light and shadow across planes of weathered color. He got his start painting plein air, but now splits his time between plein air and studio work. His work has won numerous awards, has been featured in several magazines, including on the cover of South West Art in 2012. Horn participates in a number of annual group exhibitions, is represented by six galleries and teaches painting workshops around the country and abroad. He is a signature member of both the California Art Club and Oil Painters of America.
