Colorado realist Sarah Phippen portrays the West with an understanding that comes from a deep love of the land, people and animals of the region in which she was born and raised. Sarah’s formal training began with private lessons when she was 14. Since then she has studied with prominent artists John Coleman for sculpting, and painters Jay Moore, Jim Norton, Daniel Sprick, Sandra Kaplan, and Anthony J. Ryder, each of whom deepened her understanding of oil painting, color and composition.

In 2013 she was honored at the Phippen Museum Western Art Show and Sale, with the Joe Beeler CA Foundation Award, which recognizes an artist who exemplifies the quality of work and spirit of the West. In 2015 Western Art Collector honored her with an award for her body of work, and her work was recognized as a finalist in the 2015 International ARC Salon, a competition of contemporary realist artists. She won the American Academy of Equine Art’s Award of Excellence in the spring, 2017.

A multi-facet artist, Phippen like her grandfather sculptor, painter and founder of the Cowboy Artists of America George Phippen, appreciates the grace of horses and holds a deep respect for the people who dedicate themselves to the Western way of life. “I grew up surrounded by livestock and wildlife,” she said. “Observing their personalities and expressions allowed me to experience their quiet moments or read trouble in their eyes. I see this heritage as part of our age-old relationship with animals; it is part of being human, a privilege that surrounds us every day.”

Phippen has been featured in Western Art Collector, and has been invited to participate in numerous national exhibitions including the Cattlemen’s Western Art Show and Sale, Paso Robles, CA; the San Dimas Western Art Show, San Dimas, CA; the Miniature Masterpieces Show and Sale, Prescott, AZ; the Aspen Art Festival; the Empire 100, Empire Ranch, Tucson, AZ; and the Mountain Oysters Show and Sale, Tucson, AZ. She won honorable mentions for her work at the Ex Arte Equinus 5 International Equine Art Competition and the Lone Tree Art Exhibition, CO, and had the Winning Banner entry for the Castle Rock Art on the Street, CO.

In her pursuit of fine art, Phippen worked at Joseph’s Artworks foundry, in Denver, as a wax chaser; assisted on the 2004 retrospective for George Phippen held at the Phippen Museum; and developed art enrichment programming for elementary students.

A true western artist at heart, Phippen maintains memberships to not only the Art Students League of Denver but also to the Colorado Farm Bureau. “Communicating emotions in a visual language, either in painting or sculpture, requires a fluency in light, color and form, as well as patient observation,” she said. “Observe, and observe again and look for the reasons behind expressions. How—and why—does a horse smile? That’s what I’m after.”

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.
