About

Artist: Gordon Muck – American (1926-1994) Title: Untitled Year: 1957 Medium: Oil on Board Sight size: 11 x 15.5 inches. Sheet size: 11.5 x 16 inches Framed size: 19 x 23.25 inches Signature: Signed, dated lower left Condition: Very good Frame: Framed in original frame. Frame in fair/good condition This mid-century modern atmospheric watercolor painting by Gordon Muck (1926-1994) depicts a lake or estuary shoreline on a cloudy day. Perhaps it is somewhere in central New York State where he lived and worked. The painting is signed and dated in the lower left, “G Muck 57”. The painting is on watercolor paper and is in very good condition. The nice wooden frame goes well with the painting. It is in good condition with some very small inconspicuous dings. Gordon Muck (1926-1994) was a colorful, creative force of artful nature. Born and bred on Syracuse’s north side, he lived, worked and taught in Central New York his entire life. His lasting influence as an artist, art critic, instructor and supervisor of art programs, antique dealer and mentor is still evident in the places he worked, lived and studied. By 1948, Muck was teaching in rural DeRuyter, NY, where he encouraged his students to reach their highest potential and best effort. In 1956 Muck left DeRuyter to teach at Nottingham High School, and in 1960 he became the Art Supervisor for the Syracuse Schools. He also began writing a weekly art column for the Syracuse Post Standard two years into his tenure as Art Supervisor. Muck’s final teaching appointment was at Fayetteville Manlius High School from 1965-1981, where he also planned and managed the annual FM Art Show. Muck never seemed to tire of teaching and communicating with his students, always pushing them to perform to their potential, both as artists and as human beings. Muck’s work graced several shows throughout the years. He participated in both group and solo shows in venues across Central New York and beyond. He also displayed his paintings and drawings in his own gallery at the “Pillars,” a Greek revival residence he and his wife Bertha purchased in 1959. Gordon Muck was a cultural innovator and brilliant teacher whose legacy continues in the hearts and memories of thousands of Central New York students, to whom this digital collection is dedicated.
