Driving Lines by Lindsey Bittner Graham
We are thrilled to announce that Abend Gallery's very own Lindsey Bittner Graham has been honored at the 2022 National Exhibition & Convention Signature Division. Lindsey was awarded the Animal Award of Excellence for her exceptional piece, "Driving Lines". This recognition solidifies Lindsey's standing as a prominent contemporary impressionist in the representational art world.
The award-giving body, Oil Painters of America (OPA), is a non-profit organization representing more than 3,500 artists throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico. OPA has been a pillar in the art community since its inception in 1991, promoting excellence in representational art and preserving its value and appreciation.
Lindsey Bittner Graham's success at the national exhibition highlights her impressive artistic journey, a journey that has been marked by passion and hard work since her childhood in Louisville, Kentucky. An avid horse rider and worker in stables after school, Lindsey honed her ability to capture animal expressiveness through drawing, eventually leading to a successful career as a nationally recognized fashion illustrator.
Today, Lindsey's oil paintings serve to immerse viewers in each painting's energy and atmosphere. With loose, spontaneous brushwork and a keen focus on shape and value composition, Lindsey's work continues to evolve, engaging viewers and inviting them on a journey of continuous growth and discovery.
This award for "Driving Lines" is a testament to Lindsey's remarkable ability to captivate viewers and make a significant impact within the realm of representational art.
