Glen Loates

 

Glen's work has been exhibited in such venues as The Alexander Koenig Museum, The

Institute of Zoological Research, The Centre Culturel Paris, The British Museum, The McMichael Canadian Collection, and the Royal Ontario Museum. Glen's accomplishments include the publication of three major volumes of his work, The Art of Glen Loates (1977), Birds of North America (1979), and A Brush With Life (1984). His North American wildlife series of children's books contain illustrations by Glen Loates on four themes - "Forest Mammals", "Birds At My Feeder", "Animal Babies", and "Owls".


Glen Loates is the first Canadian artist to be represented at the White House. In 1982, President Reagan, on behalf of the people of the United States of America, accepted the painting "The Bald Eagle" in The Oval Office. Glen's work is also in the private collections of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and the late Right Honorable Pierre Elliott Trudeau, former Prime Minister of Canada.


Glen is an avid and active environmentalist, lending his name and talents to hundreds of projects for nature and wildlife preservation. He completed a series of owl drawings for a platinum collector coin series for the Royal Canadian Mint and a series of four paintings of North American animals to support the World Wildlife Fund. Through the Franklin Mint, in conjunction with the National Wildlife Federation, his limited edition collector plate series, "Feline Friends" has successfully taken his popular images to the United States, Europe and Australia. Most recently, Glen has been commissioned to develop a huge Deep Sea mural representing over 125 different species of ocean life for display at the exciting new Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute.

A trained observer and chronicler of nature, he has traveled to search for rare and exotic, as well as familiar wildlife. His wanderings have taken him from his backyard to the frigid Arctic terrain; from the deserts of Arizona, to the bottom of the ocean a mile beneath the water's surface off the coasts of Newfoundland and Bermuda. Glen was invited to be the scientific artist to search for sea creatures never seen before.


Glen has been internationally acknowledged to be one of today's foremost artists. His work has been featured throughout the world in such publications as Geo Magazine, Time Magazine and Reader's Digest. He has received many honors, including induction into the prestigious Explorers' Club, for being the first artist to descend 5, 117 feet in a submersible, to study and record deep-sea life in the Atlantic Ocean.


Glen Loates is an artist who paints any subject with equal skill. He uses "Prismacolor" pencils, watercolors, oils and pastels for his paintings and drawings. The vitality of his work springs not only from his deft, delicate and detailed brushwork, but also from a wonderful ability to capture the essence of his subjects in their natural environment. His paintings leap to life as he portrays the spirit that is nature. Glen also applies his talent painting and drawing landscape.
