Bruce K. Lawes, is an internationally collected painter  who was born in Toronto, Canada. He has remained a resident in the area all his life, however, as the broad range of subject matter in his paintings may suggest, Bruce has a great interest in travel.  “One of  the first things you notice about the art of Bruce Lawes is the artist’s versatility; whether it be a figurative painting, a landscape or an equine his work always upholds a strong  level of quality, craftsmanship and  technical skill.”  (International  Artist Magazine  2011).

Lawes’ is a member of the Artists for Conservation (AFC) and the Society of Animal Artists (SAA) and has always had a passion for animal art and conservation but does enjoy painting other subject matter, “I can’t imagine painting the same thing over and over again”. His versitily allows him to take on projects of such variety it continually nourishes his interest and love of art . Recently, Lawes was commissioned by the Gettysburg Anniversary Committee to paint a Civil War commemorative painting for the 150th year remembrance of this tragic, yet important time in American history. As a result of his work he has raised thousands of dollars for the Civil War Battlefield and Historic Preservation organizations nominated by the Gettysburg Anniversary Committee and he continues to work with them as an ongoing supporter.

“Lawes is considered one of the top equine artists working today…” (American Art Collector 2012) and he has taken on the task to create a series of paintings depicting the Wild Mustang of North America to bring further awareness and support to these beautiful creatures. Lawes says, “The horse has played an integral part in our lives in the past, in peace time and in war and we owe them a great debt of gratitude”.

In 2011 The American Art Awards honoured Lawes with ‘Best of Show’ and ‘three first prize’ awards. Also, in 2011 International Artist Magazine awarded Lawes with the ‘Grand Prize’ for his painting in the ‘People and Figures’ category. In 2012 Lawes has won numerous awards. At the Buckhorn Art Show Lawes was awarded the ‘Arabella Magazine prize’ for most impactful painting. American Art Awards, 2012, honoured Lawes with ‘The Stoney Award’ (most overall wins) and ‘The Masterpiece Award’  (most individual wins) and ‘three  first prizes’. International Artist Magazine awarded Lawes as a ‘Grand Prize’ winner in the ‘Favourite Subjects’ category. Southwest Art Magazine’s Artistic Excellence Competition and Artist Magazine’s Annual Art Competition  acknowleged Lawes as a ’finalist’ in each of their contests. In the 2013 American Art Awards  Lawes has once again won the ‘Masterpiece Award’  and  ‘two first prizes’.

Lawes has done many personal and corporate works over the years, yet in order to give meaning to his work, he often paints with a significant theme. He continues to refine his natural talents while directing his paintings towards a greater purpose, when possible. He seeks out worthy programs that will generate public awareness and solid corporate participation. “Without the individual and corporate efforts today, we may not be able to preserve and enjoy all we cherish with our children tomorrow”.

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.
