Leap Frog, 12″ x 9″ Original Oil Painting by artist Lori Garfield, Medford Oregon

Cheetahs at Sunset, original oil painting by Eugenia Talbott

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 5 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.
