The Fred Oldfield Western Heritage & Art Center presents: A Robert Walton oil painting workshop

February 11, 2011 | Category: Artist, Events, Western Art

355  320x240 bob walton at work The Fred Oldfield Western Heritage & Art Center presents: <strong>A Robert Walton oil painting workshop</strong> If Americans are fixated on a special time and place in their history, it’s the Old West, that boundless vista so full of variety and extremes: the looming mountains and grassy plains, the brooding forests and parched deserts; the thundering herds and shy, solitary creatures; the native peoples and the immigrants, the noble and the nefarious, exploiters and exploited; the realities, the legends and the purely conjectural.

Small wonder that the art of the West is so highly prized – it’s a stagecoach ride right into the national psyche – with the most accomplished artists revered for their skill in transporting the viewer to breathtakingly unique, almost mystical landscapes – even if they are, like Mount Rainier, ones that you can see from the freeway when you commute to work each morning.

Fred Oldfield is such an artist. Robert Walton, who will be teaching a three-day palette knife oil painting workshop at The Fred Oldfield Western Heritage & Art Center in Puyallup later this month, is another.

A recipient of numerous awards, recent inductee into the venerable Oil Painters of America (www.OilPaintersofAmerica.com) and an avid mountain climber, Bob Walton is represented by six galleries in six Western states. He has also painted absolutely spectacular murals – but don’t take MY word for it: See for yourself at www.RobertWalton.com.

This is a great opportunity for local artists to build up their skill sets in advance of the warm weather and all the outdoor painting opportunities that will come with it. But space is limited, so don’t delay! And let us here at AmeriCollector.com know how it goes!

When: Fri., Feb. 25, to Sun., Feb. 27, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Bring a sack lunch!)
Where: RED GATE at the Puyallup Fairgrounds, Ninth Ave. SW, Puyallup
How much: $180
