Armantrout's Painting Installed at Elk Creek Ranch

At the confluence of the free stone White River and the spring creek fishery of Elk Creek, a spectacular Village has been created. The interiors of the Lodge and other buildings of the Village at Elk Creek Ranch have been designed by Rodney Briggs of Ralph Lauren Home Collection. Linda Armantrout's painting "Connection to Ancestors II" 67"x88" was chosen by Mr. Briggs, to be installed in June, 2011 at the first residence built in Elk Creek Ranch. Pictures to come soon!


Armantrout Paints LARGE

With encouragement from Jerry Allen Gilmore to paint larger, I started in the fall of 2008, to create a rigging that would allow me to paint a 67"x88" in my Studio. I bought the widest raw canvas available by roll in Denver. Then Kathy Davis at Davis Tent & Awning sewed seams on the sides and at top and bottom with room for rods.  I devised a pulley system with clothes line that I could attach to both ends of the top rod and then tie to the railing. Then I was able to lower the piece to the family room level behind the piano to paint it. It was simpler and safer than scaffolding.


Armantrout's Student Nicole Fox Wins America's Next Top Model

I am so thrilled for my art student, Nicole Fox, America's Next Top Model! Nicole's intelligence, integrity, and hard work led to a win in November '09 on ANTM on the CW network.

Nicole worked hard in classes in my studio and made excellent work for 3 years. She was offered a full art scholarship to University of Denver, and chose to study art at the University of Colorado to collaborate with her sister, Alexandra, a theatre and creative writing student.

Nicole told me she applied the elements and principles that she learned in our classes to the work she did on America's Next Top Model. That is great feedback for me because I believe and teach that whatever your media, these classes will improve your aesthetic and your work.


Armantrout Selected for NCAR for November


The body of work titled "Horse Power as Spirit" was selected for a solo exhibition  in November, 2009,  at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR Gallery 1).  Pieces in the show will include Power Images and the Glory Series, "Horse Power as Spirit", and "Connection to Ancestors II" (67"x88" oil on canvas).

NCAR Gallery 1 has really good gallery hours. The drive up into the foothills and the views from the gallery are stunning. 

NCAR Art Galleries are located in NCAR's Mesa Laboratory 1850 Table Mesa Drive, Boulder, Colorado.
