This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From Pennsylvania, Andrew Turner was a painter of jazz themes, sometimes based on "nostalgic recollections of my days as a young tough" in the African-American culture of the ghetto. Of his painting, he says:

"At the very least, hopefully, these vignettes of experience will help to provide insight into some African American lifestyles and serve as an inspiration to my students and others to continue the legacy of African American participation in the arts." (rogallery)

He has also been a teacher who studied at the Tyler School of Art at Temple University.  In Chester, Pennsylvania, he taught grades K through 12 in the public schools and also taught in correctional centers.

Positions include Artist-in-Residence and Curator, Deshong Museum, Chester, PA; Lecturer, Widener University; Lecturer, Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA; and touring and lecturing in The People's Republic of China.

Biography from RoGallery.com:
Andrew Turner was born in l944 in Chester, Pennsylvania. He was a graduate of Temple University's Tyler School of Art.  Andrew's work has been widely acclaimed, with many solo exhibitions and participation in group exhibitions.  He has taught art in grades K-1 2 in the Chester, Pennsylvania Public Schools and in correctional centers.  His appointments include Artist-in-Residence and Curator, Deshong Museum, Chester, PA; Lecturer, Widener University; Lecturer, Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA; and, he toured and lectured in The People's Republic of China.

He has been featured in numerous solo exhibitions and group exhibitions in the United States and abroad. His Philadelphia commissions include: WDAS FM (1996); Marco Solo, (published by J. Schwinn and G. Harlow, illustrated by Andrew Turner) Reverse Angle Productions, Inc. (I 995); and Robin Hood Dell, Fairmount Park (1985).

Artist Statement: "My paintings combine the drama inherent in seventeenth century Dutch painting with the brush work and the economy of the Impressionists. However, I look to the jazz idiom more so than to other contemporary visual artists for guidance and inspiration. I tend to measure the success of my pieces by how they stand up technically, emotionally and innovatively to a Coltrane solo or whether I've captured the spirit of the occasion, a la Ellington. The subject matter, sometimes nostalgic recollections of my days as a young tough, covers a myriad of common folk activities. The setting usually my native Chester, is a beehive of creative stimulation or a deteriorating ghetto depending on my state of mind. At the very least, hopefully, these vignettes of experience will help to provide insight into some African American lifestyles and serve as an inspiration to my students and others to continue the legacy of African American participation in the arts."
