Eugenia Talbott Shows African Themed Original Oil Paintings at Berryman Gallery

Cheetahs, original oil painting by Eugenia TalbottSOAR member artist Eugenia Talbott of Talbott Studios has had five paintings accepted into a show of African themed art at the Berryman Gallery, upstairs from the Craterian Theater, in conjunction with their current presentation of the teen musical “Tarzan.” The play has been a huge hit with sold out crowds, which is great for the young actors in our area. A member of the Rogue Gallery and Art Center, Talbott’s collection of superb original oils depicting African subjects are on exhibit now through the end of September. The paintings are titled Boss (a magnificent oil face-to-face portrait of a male lion, complete with flowing mane), Cheetah Family at Sunset, Zebra II, Priddy, Elisa, & Samburu Girls. The latter three are portraits of young Africans whom Genie met personally on her travels there. All originals are also available as limited edition prints.

The play shows again tonight and tomorrow night (link for tickets is in the event posting at Talbott Studios’ Facebook page and at the Craterian Theater’s website, $22 for adults, $12 for kids). Genie’s paintings will continue on display throughout the month of September. Please go see them – they’re magnificent!

Coincidentally, she had already made arrangements with curator Hannah West Design LLC for an exhibition of her art at GoodBean Coffee in Jacksonville for September. She will be showing a prints of the original African oil paintings currently at the Berryman, as well as more original oils and watercolor paintings of her lovely equine art and more!

Please like her Talbott Studios Facebook page and visit her website www.talbottstudios.com to see more of her work in oil, watercolor and graphite, which includes paintings of big cats (lions, tigers, cheetahs…), polar bears, dogs, horses, indigenous people and more. Please share and spread the word among animal-loving friends who might find they have a taste for her art!
