Veryl Goodnight and her husband, Roger Brooks, live in the mountains of Southwest Colorado, between Durango and Mesa Verde National Park. The dramatic landscapes, abundant wildlife, and the ranching community provide endless inspiration for both sculpture and painting.

The essence of Veryl’s work is a result of working from life. Her studio is at the end of the horse barn and includes a “model run” to the west and an overhead door between the studio and the barn aisle to assist with large sculptures. Veryl is spending more and more time painting and her art studio provides uninterrupted views and frequent wildlife sightings out of every window.

Veryl has monumental sculptures across the United States and in Europe and Japan. The most notable is “The Day The Wall Came Down,” a 14,000 pound bronze sculpture consisting of five larger than life size horses jumping over the fallen Berlin Wall. The United States Air Force flew this monument to Berlin, Germany in 1998 on the 50th anniversary of the Berlin Airlfit, where it was installed in the Allied Museum. A sister casting is at the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library in Texas. In November 2019 a maquette of this sculptures was unveiled at the U. S. Air Force Academy. This maquette joins already installed sister maquette castings at the Central Intelligence Agency and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

Veryl’s work has been profiled in several books and her work has been featured in all major American art magazines. For years Veryl has exhibited in prestigious museum shows such as the Autry Museum in Los Angeles, the Old West Museum in Cheyenne, the Eitelgorg Museum in Indianaoplis, the Gilcrease Museum in Oklahoma City, the Cowgirl Hall of Fame Museum in Fort Worth and the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole.

Veryl is a Fellow of the National Sculpture Society and a member of the Society of Animal Artists. In 2016 Veryl was inducted into the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame. Not by being a cowgirl but for her decades long representation of the American West in art.

Veryl and her husband live outside the small mountain town of Mancos, Colorado. They have a ranch that includes horses, a donkey and a team of sled dogs that Veryl has trained herself. Veryl now spends more of her time oil painting than sculpting. The quiet serenity of Veryl’s environment allows her to concentrate on what she does best, create art. Veryl’s great enthusiasm about life and art mirrors the title of her art book. With Veryl there is “No Turning Back.”

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.

3. Tie wire.
4. Aluminum foil.
5. Scissors.
6. Favorite sculpture tools.
7. Plank of wood (pine) approximately 8″ x 8″ x 2″.
Bring as many planks as you wish…the wood is used as the base for your sculpture.

16. Bird field guides such as Peterson, Stokes, Golden, or Sibley. Sibley’s Guide to Birds (not Sibley’s Guide to Bird Life and Behavior) is best if bringing only one field guide. This popular book can usually be purchased at any bookstore.
