John Baeder paintings featured at O.K. Harris in NYC, April 26th thru May 24th

John’s Diner with John’s Chevelle (Center Moriches, NY 1976)
2008 oil on canvas 30 x 48 inches

I just got a post card with the above image in the mail from my friend and mentor John Baeder. It is an anouncement about his upcoming exhibit of paintings being displayed at the O.K. Harris Gallery in New York City.

For those who do not know, John has been the premier “diner painter” in the world since the early 1970’s. Using a style some term “Photo Realist”, John’s paintings in oil, watercolor and other mediums are very representational and show the subject in a specific time and place. Generally the diner is always the main subject in his paintings but usually they are shown in conjunction  with their surroundings.

The exhibit runs from April 26th thru May 24th, 2008. John will be at the gallery on Saturday the 26th from 3 – 5 pm. O.K Harris is located at 383 West Broadway, NYC for more info visit their website at

  1. I would suggest that Baeder is not ONLY the “premier diner painter” in the world, but one of the finest artists in any medium alive today. His work is exquisite, evocative and never fails to move the viewer.

  2. Florie,
    I guess I could have described John and his paintings many ways in the blog. But I’ve been a friend of his for 27+ years now and sometimes words cannot even begin to describe his talent!
