b.1966

Bill has pursued his dream of creating beautiful art since he first stood at an easel at the age of five. He sold his first painting in a professional gallery while still in high school and has been working as a full-time artist for the last 17 years. To satisfy his love of teaching art he did diverge slightly to finish his MFA in painting in 2006. He continued to provide for his family with the sale of his paintings, but he felt that increasing his education would only enhance his opportunities to serve his collectors and galleries. He is forging creatively ahead and continues to enhance the beauty and naturalism in his work. He hopes you will feel peace and reassurance while you enjoy his work and experience a moment of the joy he felt while painting. As much as he thanks Heavenly Father daily for the gift of being an artist, his greatest joy is in his family. Kristie and their 7 children have supported and sustained him through every moment. Bill’s life is a dream fulfilled. He is constantly amazed with and wishes to thank the incredible people he has met and worked with as an artist.

Bill Inman grew up with an artist for a father and was therefore exposed to the art world at a young age. This exposure fostered an on-going thirst for knowledge on many levels. All aspects of a broad variety of visual medium have been skillfully studied, if not mastered: painting, printmaking, sculpture, illustration and graphic design, plus photography and art history. Bill has completed his studies toward a Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting. It is this quest for knowledge that synthesized his passion as a painter. Inman’s color and design sense were begun under Kesler Woodward at the University of Alaska. Intensive study in painting, drawing, illustration, color and design were continued under Leon Parson at Rick’s College in Rexburg, Idaho. But his most influential instructor at Rick’s College was Arlo Coles (a good friend of Sergei Bongart) who ignited a passion for French and Russian Impressionist imagery and techniques. These influences on the landscape artist helped him combine the French and Russian qualities and mold them with his own personal style of color and depth, pulling the viewer into the landscapes. Having started as an en plein air painter Inman soon realized his preference was for studio work producing paintings that do not have any photographic resemblance. Inman wants as little detail as possible to convey an image but wants to concentrate on each element in his paintings. His desire is for the viewer to experience the same original enthusiasm that he experienced upon his first encounter with the subject matter. Gardens burst with colors of stately hollyhocks and fragrant roses. They are just within reach for the viewer. Inman stops painting detail when he believes that he has achieved the naturalism and emotive response he is seeking. One’s eye completes the story started with brush and pigment. Bill Inman has exhibited consistently since 1983 when he was a Congressional Art Award recipient. This was a huge honor as only one artist from each state was selected for an exhibition that toured the Capital. In 1999 he was one of the featured artists in the Southwest Art Magazine “Artists to Watch” special section. He is in national and international collections too numerous to list.

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.

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.
