THe following information courtesy of Kristine Winton:

After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Kansas in 1970, he spent the following years curating and lecturing for the National Endowment for the Arts, before taking up residence in New York in 1975 to develop a career as an artist.

In 1983, McPherson had his first solo exhibition at the A.M. Sachs Gallery in New York. McPherson next devoted his energies to printmaking, producing mezzotints of New York City at night. These prints led to a corporate art commission for the American Express Company for a 90-foot mural cycle for the auditorium of their corporate headquarters at the World Financial Center (WFC). This series of oil paintings is composed of four panels titled, Twilight: The Waterways and Bridges of Manhattan. In January 1987, the Harbors of the World mural cycle was initiated by American Express for the lobby of their New York WFC headquarters. This vast undertaking involved ten paintings 365 feet long by 11 feet high. The project involved traveling the world for one year, and studio work for four years. The murals depict the harbor cities -- New York, Venice, Istanbul, Sydney, Rio de Janeiro and Hong Kong. They are on permanent view in the American Express lobby and are referenced in a new book, Art in Public Places: New York's 50 Best, by David Masello.

McPherson has had a number of solo gallery shows in New York and has been in group exhibitions all over the world. He's also had a number of smaller corporate and museum commissions. In 1998 he had his first museum retrospective at The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge University, England. The show traveled to Glasgow, Scotland.

McPherson's work is included in numerous museums, corporate and private collections in the U.S. and abroad. These include The Metropolitan Museum of Art; The British Museum, London; The Art Institute of Chicago; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Boston Museum of Fine Arts; Boston Public Library; The Carnegie Institute of Art, Pittsburgh; The Cleveland Museum; Delaware Art Museum; The Detroit Fine Arts Institute; The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, England; The Hunterian, Glasgow; The Library of Congress; Minneapolis Institute of Art; National Museum of American Art, Washington; The Smithsonian Institution; The New York Historical Society; Museum of the City of New York; The Whitney Museum of American Art; The Wichita Art Museum; The San Francisco Museum of Fine Art; and many smaller city and university collections. Corporate collections include Alliance Capital, Bank of America, Chase Manhattan Bank, Citicorp, Dreyfus, Exxon, General Electric, Marsh McLennan, MBIA, Microsoft Corporation, Salomon Brothers, Wrigley's Inc. and others.

McPherson has won art awards, been reviewed in The New York Times, The Financial Times, Artnews, The New York Post, The Observer and other publications
