Ron Bimrose

Combining elements of nature and manmade environments, Ron Bimrose’s work explores the mingling of hand-drawn and painted elements with photographic images. Through imagery that explores the interconnection and dissimilarity between humans and their environments, Bimrose creates associations and connections to our everyday lives.

Ron Bimrose is an educator of fine art at Mesa Community College and maintains his studio in Tempe, Arizona. In the late 60s, he bought his first camera. He purchased it for the purpose of recording objects for his drawing and painting, his first artistic pursuit. Photography took over. More than a decade later it was printmaking that guided him back to his roots in drawing. Today, he uses the variety of tools and skills that he has honed over decades of work: drawing, painting, printmaking, photography and collage. This mixed-media work has earned him a Visual Arts Fellowship from the Arizona Commission on the Arts and inclusion in numerous private and public collections including: The National Baseball Hall of Fame, Cooperstown, N.Y., Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Scottsdale Arizona, Chase Special Collections Center, Carol Reece Museum, Plains Art Museum, Northlight Gallery, Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona, and the Kennedy Museum of Art.
