Greg Mort is a widely recognized American contemporary artist whose unmis- takably modern creations have the classic feel of the Dutch Masters juxtaposed with startlingly modern designs. His signature images combine his twin passions for science and nature.
Mort’s artwork is in many prominent collections including the Smithsonian, Na- tional Gallery of Art, Boston Museum of Science, Delaware Art Museum, Farnsworth Museum, Academy Art Museum, Portland Museum of Art, Brandy- wine River Museum and the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum. The United States Department of State’s Art in Embassies program has selected many of his paintings for their cultural diplomacy efforts including an ongoing exhibition at The White House. Mort’s artwork has been exhibited in over one hundred museum and gallery shows around the world. Recent museum shows include “Lunar Attractions” at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA and “Starry Skies of Art” at the Serlachius Museum in Mänttä, Finland. Currently Mort’s paintings are featured at The American Visionary Art Museum in Balti- more Maryland.
Deeply fascinated with astronomy and the universe Mort’s life-long interest in science is frequently reflected in his artwork. He has been a commissioned NASA artist since 1983 and serves on the board of the Lowell Observatory. In 2010 his painting “ZERO-G Apples” was one of six paintings juried into “The First Art Show in Space@” aboard the International Space Station. A skilled astro-photographer and telescope builder Mort is a sought after speaker on the intersection of art and science.
Throughout his career Mort has recognized the power of imagery and used his art to share his passion of promoting environmental awareness. In 2007 he established The Art of Stewardship Project, his family foundation that supports and inspires ecological consciousness through the arts. The Art of Stewardship Project works with arts and educational organizations to build partnerships and collaborations reinforcing the artist’s role in preserving our fragile Earth. Leading by example Mort is a Clinton Global Initiative Partner offering his artwork to support the goals of Circle of Blue the international organization of top journalists and scientists providing relevant, reliable, and actionable on-the-ground information about the world’s water and food resource crises. CircleofBlue.org
Mort is a self taught artist, passionate amateur astronomer and enthusiastic competitive archer. During the winter he lives and paints in rural Montgomery County Maryland and in summer on the rugged Maine coast in the fishing village of Port Clyde.

“Greg is a master at helping us to see our planet as a gift to be treasured. His Art of Stewardship program highlights the role of the citizen artist – to create more than a concert on a stage, or a framed image on a wall, but to create a call to act – using art – in a way that makes the world better for all.”
John Schratwieser, Executive Director Maryland Citizens for the Arts
