“I’ve enjoyed drawing and painting since I was child,” says artist Kerry Adcock. His love for art was always rooted in realism. “My goal is to catch the reality of a scene depicting the finest detail. It is the beauty that is reality.”
Adcock was born in Aurora, Colorado while his father, a career Air Force veteran, was stationed in Denver. As a military family, Adcock traveled and lived all over the world, in Japan, Pakistan, and West Germany. He attended Angelo State University on an Air Force ROTC Scholarship where he studied fine art and art history. In 1979 he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Art. Adcock entered the U.S. Airfare and during his enlistment he had the opportunity to visit The Louvre which continued to feed his love of art.
His work has been in numerous juried art shows in Texas, Colorado, and Wyoming, such as the 2013 Texas National Competition and Exhibitions, the 2017 National Animal Art Juried Exhibition, the 2020 40th Annual Western Spirit Juried Art Show and Sale, and the 2021, 2022, and 2023 Cowboy True Art Show, and recently at the 2022 Bosque Art Classic, just to name a few. His art was selected as a finalist in Southwest Art Magazine and was included in the December 2022 issue. One of his pieces was selected as one of the Best of Show artists in the February-May 2023 Fusion Art Competition.
