Join us for a talk about art presented by CT-based artist Roberta Shea. Roberta is a prolific and accomplished painter and printmaker. In addition to her steady output of work as a artist of many genres, she is also currently a docent at the New Britain Museum of American Art. Her life, embraced and dedicated as it is to the Arts, gives her a deep understanding as an ‘Artist Talking About Art’.
Roberta Shea is a Newtown painter known for her highly-textured vibrant paintings of the natural world. Her abstracted paintings are about the physical process of painting inspired by Impressionism and Abstract Expressionism. Looking closely at other artist’s works informs her canvases and her students. She studied at Southern Connecticut State University, Creative Arts Workshop, Washington Arts Association, and Society of Creative Arts in Newtown, taught art at Masuk High School, adult education and afterschool programs and conducted tours at the New Britain Museum of American Art.
