SPOTLIGHT ON ZOOINITAS ARTIST - Adele Richert
ZOOINITAS WELCOMES ARTIST ADELE RICHERT
Adele Richert works primarily in oil and has also created wildlife art in pen and ink, graphite, watercolor, and mixed media. Her subjects are wildlife, still life and landscape en plein air. Ms. Richert's intention is to show the beauty the world has to offer, if remember to take the time to see it.
Prior to relocating to San Diego in 2011, Adele Richert was an emerging artist in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has exhibited her wildlife, still life and landscape paintings at the Atrium in San Francisco, the Hearst Gallery in Moraga, Frank Bette Center for the Arts and Estuary Art Attack in Alameda and F3 Oakland. Adele studied at U.C. Berkeley Extension in the Studio Design program. She also studied with San Francisco wildlife artist Carolyn Griffin, attended courses at Chabot College with artist and instructor Kim Mendenhall and attended workshops with Oakland fine artist Carol Tarzier. Ms. Richert has been mentored by master artists John Cosby, Gil Dellinger, Kevin Macpherson and Joseph Paquet.
Currently, Richert works from her studio in the Point Loma Liberty Station/NTC Promenade Creative Arts and Culture District. Stop by and see her at Barracks 19 a Atelier de Voyages.
"If we, as artists, can bring awareness to others about the wildlife that is threatened with extinction, either by loss of habitat or hunting, hopefully we can help to save these animals for future generations to enjoy and observe in their natural habitat, and in zoos, such as the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park, which are working on public awareness and wildlife conservation for these incredible species. I had the amazing opportunity to visit Tanzania and observe wildlife in its natural habitat, where I was able to capture this magnificent lion during a photo safari. I am thrilled to be exhibiting my painting of him in the 2014 Zooinitas show."
