Virginia Grumbles is having an exhibition of her contemporary/modern artworks at The Treasury on March 16, 2013 from 4 to 7pm. Virginia is a native of Texas whose lineage includes several generations of Texas pioneer families, who settled in the central Texas area. She is proud of her heritage and feels that this heritage is important in her love of nature and art.
Virginia received her bachelor's and master's in art and art education from the University of Texas at Austin. She had traveled and studied in Europe and the United States, bringing back the rich experiences to her high school classes and art studio. Mrs. Grumbles prefers to paint large works using oils, watercolors and acrylics. She has exhibited works in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Princeton, New Jersey and in Austin, Texas at St. Edwards University and Laguna Gloria Art Museum. She is a charter member of the Lake Travis Arts League and has exhibited each year with this organization.
Mrs. Grumbles retired in 1993 and she continues to teach students privately. She feels retirement has given her more personal time to pursue her artistic quest.
Virginia believes a work of art is only as unique as the vision of the person who transforms the work into form and color. The transformation is more than subject matter, it about things too deep to be uttered any other way.
Virginia's artwork will be on display at The Treasury 6535 Comanche Trail Austin, Texas through the end of April 2013.
