James Goss (b. 1956, Bainbridge, Maryland) has painted landscapes since 1973. 


The second of eight children and the son of an Officer in the Marines, Goss moved to Hudson Falls, New York at the age of 12. It was here that Goss developed a long, deep fascination with nature. Of his long-time home in the high Adirondacks, from which much of his life’s work stems, Goss says, “The wonder of nature is endless. I’m here by design, not by accident.”

Recent exhibitions include a solo presentation at Kantor Gallery, Los Angeles (2021) and 36 Paintings, Harper’s East Hampton, New York, (2021). Goss was a co-director of White Columns, New York, from 1981-1982, and holds a BFA from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.
