Frank Palmieri, a distinguished American Postwar & Contemporary painter, lived in Indialantic, Florida, for the last two decades of his life. Before his Florida residency, Palmieri established an art gallery and studio in Ogunquit, Maine, where he passionately created from 1967 to 1987. His artistic journey took shape at the Art Students League in Manhattan, where he studied under notable teachers, including Reginald Marsh, Ivan Olinsky, Robert Brackman, and Frank Reilly, courtesy of the G.I. Bill.

Exclusively working with oil, Palmieri's landscapes and seascapes graced locations in France, Italy, Mexico, and across the U.S. His accolades included the Robert Lehmann Award in 1963, which facilitated a year of study at the National Academy under Morton Roberts. A life member of esteemed artistic organizations such as the Art Students League in New York, Palmieri's memberships also extended to the Vero Beach Art Club, Salmagundi Club, Allied Artists, National Art League, Brevard Art Center & Museum, Artists Forum in Melbourne, FL, and the Spacecoast Art League in FL.

His dedication to the craft and his widespread recognition in various artistic circles solidified Palmieri's lasting impact on the contemporary art scene until his passing in 2017.
