“Vision is the quest, color is the gift. Love and discipline are the driving forces that allow me to conceptualize and paint my reverence for nature.”
– Gary Milek
Gary Milek was drawn to nature and to the fine arts at an early age and has devoted his career to combining these passions, finding inspiration for his enchanting paintings among the hills and fields of Windsor County, Vermont, and within the orchards and gardens just outside his door.

Milek has exhibited in solo and group shows throughout New England and in New York City, including at such prestigious venues as the National Academy of Design, the Copley Society of Boston, Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, and the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Park in Cornish, New Hampshire, and in 2012 he participated in an international art show entitled ‘Gold’ at the Belvedere Museum in Vienna, Austria. He has earned several awards over the course of his career, and the respect of fellow artists and collectors; famed American painter George Tooker fell into both categories and said of Milek, “[He] paints with a quiet and compelling lyricism. The work hangs harmoniously because of the talent, the depth of feeling, and the sincerity of the artist.”
