Kneeland Gallery to Introduce the Moore Family Painters

Friday, September 2, 2022


Renowned plein air painter Robert Moore has been considered an inspiration and mentor to many accomplished painters, including some who exhibit at Kneeland Gallery and some accomplished Wood River Valley artists.

He also has rubbed off on his own children with two of his sons and two of his daughters becoming talented artists in their own right.

In that vein, Kneeland Gallery is staging a September exhibition titled “Family Ties: The Moore Family.” And art lovers will be able to see the work of Anna, Rachel, Robbie and Caleb Moore exhibited alongside their father’s work during tonight’s Gallery Walk.

Judith Kindler’s “Deer Me,” features acrylics on multiple panels on wood panel, 48-by-72-inches at Gail Severn Gallery

Numerous Ketchum galleries will be open from 5 to 7 p.m. tonight—Friday, Sept. 2—for the September Gallery Walk. Among them: Kneeland at 271 N. 1st Ave. N.

Robert Moore’s work is characterized by applying a multitude of oils onto his canvas, then working them with a palette knife with both hands until the composition emerges. What he does is all the more remarkable since he is color blind.

Moore’s daughter Anna Moore enjoys painting trees, which she creates with layers of color and texture. Rachel Moore depicts favorite vistas in an impressionistic style. Robbie Moore is inspired by places that held significance for him growing up, in particular the rugged Rocky Mountains.

And Caleb Moore, who has already exhibited numerous paintings at Kneeland Gallery, recently discovered a passion for sculpting and is now creating in clay and other mediums.

She started out doing stained glass windows for Louie’s and other restaurants, as well as private homes.  In 1993 she attended Boise State University, where she took a variety of painting classes.

“I’ve always been an artist at heart,” she said. “I love the beauty that comes out of paintings. When I paint, I see color. I love color and the juiciness of oil paint.”
