For the last two decades, Hyde has been a recognized leader among Native American artists, and his reputation has been increasing. From images evoked by Indian lore to those reflecting the modern Native American, his work exudes emotion, strength, and beauty and resonates with influences from his Native American heritage. Hyde was born in Hermiston, Oregon of Nez Perce, Chippewa, and Assiniboine background. He studied at the Institute of American Indian Art in Santa Fe, where he worked with renown sculptor Allan Houser, and continued his artistic education under a scholarship at the San Francisco Institute of Art. Hyde then served with the army in Vietnam, but was gravely wounded during his second tour of combat duty. Upon his return, Hyde moved back to Santa Fe, where he continued his studies at night by learning to carve stone using power tools, while working during the day. Beginning in 1972, he served as a faculty member at the Institute of American Indian Arts, leaving in 1974 to devote himself full-time to his own artwork.

Hyde sculpts in a wide array of materials including marble, alabaster, onyx, limestone and finally, bronze. His creativity has evolved with even greater diversity through working in bronze. The contrast and textures he achieves by sculpting in this medium and exploring different patinas is remarkable and bold. Sculptures by Doug Hyde are included in the collections of the Amon Carter Museum of Western Art, the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center, the Heard Museum, Museum of the Southwest, the Eitelborg Museum, and the Gilcrease Museum. The Gilcrease Museum sponsored a retrospective exhibit of Hyde’s work in 1990. A Fellow of the National Sculpture Society, Hyde was elected to its board of directors in 2008. That year was an auspicious one for Hyde, as he also received the Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation Award for Sculpture at the Autry National Center of the American West’s Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale, in recognition of his outstanding artistic merit. Additionally, his 14-foot bronze, “Little Turtle,” was purchased by the Smithsonian’s Cultural Resource Center in Washington, D.C. as part of its permanent collection. Hyde has continued to be granted numerous commissions for public and private works, and was awarded the 2009 Best Sculpture Award by the Eiteljorg Museum at their Quest for the West show and sale. Since 2006 Doug Hyde has worked out of his studio in Prescott, Arizona.

Broadmoor Galleries in Colorado Springs is proud to present “Moore Art: A Family Affair,” an exhibition that showcases the unique artistic styles of American impressionist artist Robert Moore, and his two children, Anna, and Robbie Moore. Robert, who is colorblind and paints with both hands simultaneously, has established himself as a prominent figure in the art world, and his children have followed in his footsteps.

Robert Moore, a celebrated American painter who is colorblind and paints with both hands simultaneously, is known for his signature landscapes, cityscapes, and portraits. The exhibition will showcase a range of Moore’s works alongside those of his talented children.

“Moore Art: A Family Affair” is a unique opportunity to experience the work of three incredibly talented artists from the same family,” said Broadmoor Galleries director, Jamie Oberloh. “Robert Moore’s impressionistic style is a true representation of the beauty and diversity of America, and his children Anna and Robbie are following in his footsteps with their own unique styles and techniques.”

Robert Moore’s artistic achievements are all the more remarkable given that he is colorblind. Despite this, he has become known for his ability to create vivid and striking color palettes in his paintings. He has also developed a unique technique of painting with both hands simultaneously, which allows him to create intricate details and textures in his works.

Moore’s use of both hands to paint has been compared to the way a pianist uses both hands to play a complex piece of music. This technique requires a great deal of focus and coordination, and it has become one of Moore’s signature methods.

Moore’s colorblindness has also influenced his work in other ways. He has said that he is drawn to painting landscapes because he is able to see the world in shades of green, which he can differentiate more easily than other colors. This has led him to develop a deep appreciation for the beauty of nature and the environment.

Despite his colorblindness and unique painting technique, Robert Moore has become one of America’s most beloved impressionist painters. His works continue to inspire and captivate viewers, and his contributions to American art are truly remarkable.

Anna Moore, a professional artist in her own right, draws inspiration from her father’s work and her surroundings, using her skillful brushstrokes to capture the essence of nature in her landscapes. She works in a variety of media, including oil painting, watercolor, and printmaking. Her work is inspired by the natural beauty of the American West and the people and places that inhabit it.  

Robbie Moore, who recently graduated with a Finance degree from the University of Arkansas, has always had a passion for art and the natural world. He has developed his skills in drawing, gouache, watercolor, and oil painting, and his work has been featured in a company calendar commissioned by his employer. With his father’s legacy of developing artists and a lineage of artists in his family, Robbie’s future aspiration is to make the most out of his upbringing and create a name for himself in the art world.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the work of three incredibly talented artists,” said Broadmoor Galleries’ director, Jamie Oberloh. “The combination of Robert’s impressionistic paintings with Anna and Robbie’s unique styles and mediums creates a truly exceptional exhibition that will delight and inspire our visitors. Their paintings are a true representation of the beauty and diversity of America, and we are honored to share the work with our community.”

The exhibition will be open to the public from May 18th, 2023, through June 8th, 2023, and will feature a special reception on May 18th, 2023, from 4-8 pm, where visitors can meet the artists and enjoy light refreshments. All works in the exhibition will be available for sale.
