George Hallmark’s creative career has spanned nearly five decades as he progressed from architectural designer to commercial artist to renowned oil painter. His subject matter is primarily architecture, focusing on structures in Mexico, France, Spain, Italy, and the American Southwest. Known for his precise delineation, he gives each composition an infusion of layers of light and elements of the natural world. His brushstrokes deftly capture the quiet moments of everyday life.
Hallmark’s paintings are in museum and private collections worldwide, including the Autry Museum of the American West, the Booth Western Art Museum, the Briscoe Western Art Museum, and the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art. He has also been featured in Art of the West, Southwest Art, U.S. Art, Western Art, and Architecture and Western Art Collector magazines.
He participates annually in the Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition and Sale, the Masters of the American West Art Exhibition and Sale, Quest for the West Art Show and Sale, and the American Masters Exhibition. In 1988, he was voted the official Texas State Artist. He has won numerous awards, including the Frederic Remington Painting Award at the 2017 Prix de West Invitational (National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum), the Silver Medal Award for Best Oil at The West Select: A Western Art Invitational Sale and Exhibition (Phoenix Art Museum, 2011) and the Artist of Distinction Award at the Quest for the West art show and sale (Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, 2010).
