Plein Air painting for me is about the outdoors - bucolic vistas, changing light and much more. To capture the moment is the ultimate challenge posed by painting on location. Reflections and fleeting changes in nature are just two examples of the kinds of things that inspire me to capture the moment. Although making art has been in my blood since I was a young kid growing up at the Jersey shore, it was my career as a high school art teacher that prepared me with the skills that I would eventually need to produce quality artwork. For more than fifteen years I was a printmaker, which is where I began doing landscapes. I eventually moved on to landscape oils and then to plein air in the late 90’s. I also had a mentor artist and good friend (every good artist should have one), who as a professional artist himself influenced me the most. His guidance helped me to understand what it took to become a successful artist."

With that kind of encouragement, I continued to persevere and realized that painting outdoors was the ultimate experience for me. I work exclusively in oils because of the vibrant colors and buttery texture among other reasons. The experience of getting the right composition, finding a dramatic light effect and seeing the beautiful colors is exhilarating. I enjoy painting “en plein air” because it challenges my skills. I often find myself painting the same images at different times of day and different times of the year.

"I’m never at a loss for subject matter. Living on the Jersey shore all my life has provided me with tremendous material, and my career as an artist has afforded me the opportunity to paint throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, and Europe."

An established printmaker and painter since 1970, New Jersey native Anthony Migliaccio has exhibited extensively on the state and national level. His rural and urban landscape paintings are in numerous collections internationally. His painting excursions have taken him to scenic locations throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, and Europe. Prior to his professional art career he was an art teacher and arts administrator in NJ public schools. He also taught printmaking as an adjunct at Monmouth University.
