One of the leading art organizations in North America, the 3,500 member strong Oil Painters of America will hold its first-ever “Virtuosos of the OPA” Exhibition in the upper gallery of the prestigious Salmagundi Club in New York City, September 17 through October 1, 2015. Founded in 1871, the Salmagundi Club is one of the oldest art organizations in the United States.
A painting by Rita Roberts will hang alongside a number of familiar names in this select, nationally and internationally acclaimed group of artists. Participating artists have all achieved Signature or Master Signature status obtained only by going through a rigorous application and vetting process.
Well known around the San Luis Valley of Southern Colorado, Rita’s paintings are beloved for capturing the essence of this region. The painting included is an early spring scene of ice patches on the Empire Canal, a favorite spot of the artist on her daily walks near Home Lake.
