An American Impressionist, Gregory works each day to paint in the vein of the impressionists. “I wish to carry on the conversation begun by Monet, and I believe there is still much to be said”, says Gregory. Having been an avid drawer while growing up it wasn‘t until 1998 that Gregory began painting in earnest. After 18 years of painting more and more his work is infusing the stately quality of the traditional impressionists with his own unique approach and subject choice.
Growing up with a love for drawing, Gregory’s first painting experiences came later in life where in college he took a couple painting classes as he earned his bachelor’s degree in English. For a year while working and attending college he and a friend rented an art studio simply to paint and draw for fun as they had time. It wasn’t until age 28, six years after those first real painting experiences that he finally decided to open the door again to the undying urge to be an artist. He took back-to-back painting workshops from notable artists Robert Moore and Delbert Gish and became enamored with the work of the California and Russian impressionists. With passion ablaze, he and his wife began the difficult and unending journey that many artists before have traveled. He furthered his studies with painters Robert Johnson and finally, and probably most notably, with Ovanes Berberian.

After many years with his wife’s encouragement and support, early in 2005 his wife was able to trade jobs from being a Physical Therapist to being a stay-at-home mom and Gregory started painting full time. With a son and a daughter, Gregory prefers to travel and paint with his family or paint near home.

“. . . It is this daily life we live, the nature of ourselves and our world, that so excites me when standing before my canvas—life’s vital creation that is my source of inspiration and humility.” —Gregory Packard

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.
