b.1938

Born in 1938 in Honolulu, Hawaii, Thomas Quinn is renowned for his watercolors of the birds and animals of Western America. Although his work lies within the realm of realism, subtlety, elegance, and nuance are the hallmarks of his aesthetic. Quinn’s distinctive style is characterized by a masterful use of composition, space, and color. Adhering to a “less is more” approach, he creates suggestive and very ethereal images of wildlife.

Growing up in Marin County, California, he developed a familiarity with the area’s animals, birds, and plants. His interest was given further impetus when, at age five, he was given a copy of Wild Animals of North America, which featured illustrations by the artist-naturalist Louis Fuertes. Quinn attended the College of Marin and graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, California. Then he went to New York, where he made a career illustrating not animals, but people.

In 1966, Quinn was hospitalized for a year. While recuperating, he painted the Canada geese in the vicinity of his Connecticut home. Feeling unfulfilled as an illustrator and wanting to reexperience the environment of his childhood, he moved to Point Reyes Station, California.

Quinn’s paintings have been shown in numerous exhibitions, including shows held at the Field Museum in Chicago, Illinois; the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco; and the New York Museum of Natural History. Quinn has also been a regular participant and winner of a Gold Medal for Watercolor at the Prix de West. His other awards include the Red Smith Memorial Award, National Museum of Wildlife Art; Gold Medal for Watercolor, NAWA Cowboy Hall; and Master Wildlife Artist Award, Woodson Art Museum.

Quinn’s works are in the permanent collections of the Woodson Art Museum, Wausau, Wisconsin; the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Jackson Hole, Wyoming; and the Whitney Western Art Museum, Cody, Wyoming. Quinn, who has been raising and training retrievers since the early 1970s, is also the author of The Working Retrievers (1983), considered a definitive treatment of the subject. A lavishly produced book, The Art of Thomas Quinn, containing the paintings and poetry of the artist, was published in 2010.

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.
