Bob Noreika is a graduate of Paier School of Art and has been a professional artist for more than 35 years. His passion for art is matched by a natural talent to paint a wide variety of subjects, highlighted by expressive coastal scenes, intimate woodland pictorials, and seasonal treks through the countryside. He has been inspired by the many pleasurable memories of his boyhood which was spent joyfully fishing, catching turtles, and frogs.
A prominent national award-winning artist and illustrator, his paintings hang in both corporate and private collections throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan. He is represented in numerous galleries and teaches and lectures throughout New England. Bob has illustrated several children’s books and magazine editorials.
Bob is an Elected Member of the National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylic, the Salmagundi Club, the Lyme Art Association, the Connecticut Watercolor Society, the Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society, the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts, and he is a signature member of the New England Watercolor Society.
Bob works in his studio in Avon, Connecticut and wherever the beauty of nature catches his eye. His paintings may be viewed at: Arnould Gallery, Marblehead, MA; Art 3 Gallery, Manchester, NH; Images Art Gallery, Briarcliff Manor, NY; Elaine Beckwith gallery, Jamaica, VT, and the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport where he won the Stobart Award in the 2007 International Marine Art Exhibition.
