Travels Near & Far - By Virginia Unseld

On display Now through October 25th

We are extremely pleased to be displaying art created by Virginia Unseld.  She is a local Colorado plein air artist, pursuing the art of pastel media.  Many of her paintings were painted on site in the Colorado Rockies, however this particular show depicts paintings of her various travels.

Virginia taught art in public schools for nearly 30 years and has also been an instructor for Adams State University and a number of art groups.  She is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of Colorado and the Colorado Watercolor Society.  She is also a member of Women Artists of the West and the Plein Air Painters of Colorado.

Although her focus is mostly in plein air,  this particular group of paintings were painted from sketches and photographs, due to the difficulty of traveling with equipment.  She never copies a photograph, but interprets what she has seen, felt, and experienced.  

Art, Pastel Paintings, Travel
This group of paintings is based on some of her many journeys to 
Mexico,  Hawaii,  Greece,  New Mexico and here in Colorado.
