George Mayers is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Art. He spent many years in New York doing illustrations for advertising agencies and most of the major magazines. His workhas appeared in Time, Colliers, Redbook, Coronet, Life and Fortune. His assignments often included subjects dealing both the Revolutionalry Warand the Civil War.

Mayers works with oil, watercolor and acrylic demonstrating a great facility in each. He has had many one-man shows ans has been the recipient of several awards including the Freedoms Foundation Medal for a series of paintings on the American Flag that appeared in Coronet in 1951.
