Tom Hall


A master landscape painter, Tom Hall combines water-based paints and varnishes with collaged materials (paper, cloth, tape) and all manners of drawing (charcoal, pencil, conte, pastel) to capture Maine’s haunting beauty. His work has been exhibited extensively throughout New England and is in the permanent collections of the Portland Museum of Art, Farnsworth Museum of Art, and Bowdoin College Museum of Art. His work is also in the corporate collections of the Boston Globe and The Prudential Life Insurance Company.

In addition to being a painter, Hall has written several books and is a printer, a musician, and an architect.
