To view an image by Carson Gladson is to see nature in its distinctly natural state, undisturbed by the disruptive phases of mankind, staying its own steady course. Internationally renowned for his sensitive portrayals of nature, Gladson started painting at a young age and loved to browse art supply stores in his childhood town, Oakland. At fourteen, the exuberant artist, upon completing his first painting, strapped it to his bicycle and peddled straight to the Oakland Museum of Art. After catching his breath, he asked for and was granted an audience with the art director for a professional critique of his work. Encouraging words spurred Gladson on to pursue art in his curriculum throughout high school.
After receiving his M.A. from California State University and going on to additional graduate coursework at University of California in Los Angeles, Gladson received an Assistant Professorship at California State University in Northridge. In 1973, he became Professor of Art at El Camino College, where he continues to teach today.
As a top ranking American landscape painter, Gladson's work is part of the permanent collections of both the San Francisco Museum of Art and the Oakland Museum of Art. His art is part of many corporate and private collections, including the Fluor Corporation, Neiman Marcus, AT&T, Toyota, Price Waterhouse, Federated Stores, Bullocks Department Stroe, Cannell & Chaffin, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, Weyerhauser, Rutan & Tucker, Loeb & Loeb, Warner Brothers, Welton Becket, General Mills, UCLA School of Business, Chapman University, Port of Long Beach, and the California Association of Realtors. You can also see his paintings on display at various hotels including Sheraton, Hilton, Westin, Radisson, Marriott, Good Earth Restaurants, the Beverly Hills Hotel, and the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
