Join us for a live demonstration from Abigale Palmer in the Art Studio on April 20.

Artist Bio: Abigale Palmer holds degrees from Brigham Young University and the University of Utah. Her work explores the subtle moments of joy so easily missed in the rapid pace of modern life. Her use of unworldly color combinations applied to everyday objects and scenarios helps remind us how brilliant and delicious the ordinary can be. An avid plein air painter, Abigale has participated and won awards from multiple plein air competitions in Utah. Her work can be found in Galleries in Utah and California as well as featured on an episode of  BYUtv series Artful. From still life, to larger than life portraits and 20ft wide landscapes, a bold use of color and energy is found throughout her work and life. Abigale lives and works in Provo, Utah with her husband and five young children.

Artist Statement: Obsessed with color since childhood, I use oil paint and watercolors to create bright bold imagery. Having my home base in Utah, my work often features the diverse landscapes that I am surrounded by. I create high chroma representations of mountains, fields and desert landscapes exploring themes of chasing our dreams and aspirations with all the beauty and adversity that come with it. Studying color and the breadth of human emotion it conveys from the light and whimsical to the deep, dark, and heavy corners of our capacity to feel has a large impact on my work. Using unworldly combinations of color in an effort to convey the range of emotions that accompany the human experience through large energetic contemporary landscapes.
