Tom Palmore's art defies easy classification. It's wildlife but, to say the
least, it s whimsical wildlife. With titles like Bart the Bear, Leopard at
Twilight and Gunsmoke (picturing a bison against a classic Western backdrop),
Tom takes a different look at fauna, fowl and farm animals as well as man s
friend. His paintings are big, bold and graphicóbut highly detailed which gives
them a look of realism infused with a touch of surrealism.
With an education that includes the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in
Philadelphia, the ongoing results of Palmore s dedication to his art are
impressive. His works are in the collections of such highly esteemed museums
The Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Denver Art Museum, the Whitney Museum of
Art, and major corporate and private collections including AT&T, Price
Waterhouse and Stanley Marcus, founder of Neim"
