From his website: “James Gilmore is an actively exhibiting, photo-based artist, working out of Mount Shasta in the southern Cascade Range of the far reaches of northern California. He made his first successful images on the streets of San Francisco in the 1970s, and continues to exhibit widely today. Gilmore is represented in both private and public collections in the United States, and holds a B.F.A. in Fine Art Photography from the University of San Francisco, and received his M.F.A. from the Philadelphia College of Art & Design.”

“Gilmore is currently a full-time Art Department faculty member at the College of the Siskiyous in Weed, California, where he teaches Art History, Photography and Digital Art. Prior to becoming an art educator, Gilmore worked in various US museums as both a curator and exhibit designer, including the Peabody Museum at Harvard University, the Nevada State Museum, and the Redding Museum of Art & History in California.”
