Mr. Fredericks began painting in 1958 while participating in a Master’s Program in
Art History at Ohio State University, where he had received his BA degree. After
receiving an LLB from the University of Michigan he continued painting in 1960,
studying at the Cochrane Gallery of Art in Washington DC. After a hiatus of over
50 years he has recently refocus his attentions on painting. Mr. Fredericks has
studied at One River Art School, The Art School at Old Church and Bergen
Community College and now continues his work with the Bulgarian artist
Vessellina Traptcheva.

Mr. Fredericks ‘work has appeared in several New Jersey galleries in both group
and one man shows. In 2016 he had a successful one man show in an established
art gallery in Chelsea; in 2017 at a gallery in Wyckoff New Jersey and in 2018 he
had a solo exhibition in Ridgewood New Jersey. He has been awarded 1st Prize at
an Emerging Artist Jury Show in Ringwood New Jersey and his paintings have

Gallery, Studio Gallery in Montclair, Jersey City's City Hall and the President’s Gallery and Bergen Gallery at Bergen Community College. His work can be found in the art collection of Virgin Airways, the Fort Lee Public Library and other private and public collections.

Mr. Fredericks’ body of work focuses on capturing a mood or expression and not
the replication of visual image. Because the human faces is always expressive
many of Mr. Fredericks paintings use images of one or more persons to create his
desired result. All works begin with a detailed charcoal drawing, color maybe
added, using oil, acrylic, water color, pastel or any combination, in whole or in
part, to achieve the desired effect.
