Distinguished Artist Series

Please join us for our Distinguished Artists Series featuring award-winning Elizabeth Robbins of Utah, Painting Still Life With Oils, a Demonstration

Thursday, Noveber 19, 2020, 7:00 p.m.

One profound outcome of Zoom is that we can connect with nationally recognized artists who live afar. We are therefore excited to bring you a virtual presentation with Western painter, Elizabeth Robbins.

Frost may have taken out the flowers, but they’ll be in full bloom via Zoom on November 19, when Elizabeth Robbins is guest speaker for our Distinguished Artists Series. A National Oil Painters of America 2020 Still Life Award of Excellence winner, Elizabeth will demonstrate her painting technique and show some of her award-winning masterpieces. Raised in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, she now lives and works in Ogden. She is best known for her classically beautiful floral Still Life but also enjoys painting portraits and capturing the soul of a person.

Elizabeth’s love of flowers began in childhood, thanks to her Grandmother helping her identify various wildflowers at their cabin above Oakley, Utah. “I still have the book that I pressed and categorized wildflowers with my grandmother.” Robbins also grows all the flowers that she lovingly paints. Over 100 roses, peonies, lilies, sunflowers and many other flowers are just a step away from her 600 square feet studio where she paints. She is co-owner of Bella Muse Gallery in Ogden, Utah, and owns Bella Muse Productions where she films and produces instructional painting videos and offers painting scholarships to help inspire other artists along their journey. She has won numerous awards including “Best Still Life” and “Best of Show” at the National Oil and Acrylic Painter’s Exhibit and the “Tuffy Berg Award” at the 2008 CM Russell auction. She is represented by several galleries. She also co-owns “Inspired to Paint” with her friend Shanna Kunz, which is an online art membership course.

Her work is in private collections throughout the United States and in the Ella Dunnegan Gallery of Art in Bolivar, Missouri. To learn more about Elizabeth and to see her work, visit her website, www.robbinsfineart.com Also see, Inspired to Paint which offers a supply list and a video about her supplies, https://inspiredtopaint.com/elizabeth-robbins-bio/

NOTE: Participants will be muted during the presentation, but the speaker may take selected questions from the audience after the presentation, as time allows.
