About the artist
landscape paintings of Thomas Paquette (b. 1958, Minneapolis) have been featured in solo exhibitions in prominent galleries in Chicago, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, Washington DC, and Maine as well as in solo exhibitions at Evansville Museum of Art, Erie Art Museum, Georgia Museum of Art, The Rockwell Museum, Westmoreland Museum of American Art, Wildling Art Museum, American Academy in Rome, Bennington Center for the Arts, Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Hoyt Institute of Fine Art, Quick Center for the Arts, and Roger Tory Peterson Institute, among other museums and contemporary art centers.

Paquette is the recipient of several fellowships and honors, including artist residencies at the American Academy in Rome, at the Aegean Arts and Cultural Exchange (Greece), and at three U.S. National Parks (Acadia, Yosemite, Rocky Mountain). He was awarded a three-year residency-fellowship from the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts, Miami, from 1989-91. From his studios in Maine and Pennsylvania, he completed several large commissioned works for government, corporate, and private collections. His paintings have also been selected to hang in sixteen U.S. embassies on five continents. He has lectured in the U.S. as well as in Greece, Wales and England.

He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Painting from Bemidji State University in 1985 and began painting full-time just after earning his MFA from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in 1988, which he attended on a full graduate fellowship. He maintained a studio in Maine in the 1990s and now lives and works in Pennsylvania.

A large traveling solo exhibition of Paquette's paintings, titled
On Nature's Terms: Paintings by Thomas Paquette commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, traveled in 2014 and 2015 to museums in California, Indiana and New York. Concurrent with this run, the Rockwell Museum [Corning, NY] organized another large solo exhibition of his paintings, Touching on Water.
