This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Bryon Gardner was one of Oregon's leading abstract expressionists of the 20th century. He was born in Portland in 1930 and studied with Louis Bunce in his home town. Gardner then traveled to New York for artistic education at the Brooklyn Art Museum. He became influenced by the dynamic abstract expressionist movement while in New York, and returned to Oregon totally affected by this revolutionary concept.

He became a major part of the modern movement in Oregon and exhibited extensively. These exhibits included one man shows at the Portland Art Museum, Marylhurst College, Reed College, and Corvallis Art Center in Oregon, besides numerous venues outside the state. He was also invited to show one of his major paintings at the Seattle World's Fair in 1962.

Gardner's style is often identified with the New York School and sometimes with fellow Northwest modern Mark Tobey, yet it evolved throughout his career. Gardner was one of the founding artists and supporters of the Portland Art Museum's Rental Sales Gallery. He died in 1992 and was honored with another one man show there in 1997.
