Master Realist Colin Poole at R.H. Ballard

Colin Poole, "Summer Harvest", Oil on Panel
Beginning March 23, 2011, we will be exhibiting the work of Colin Poole at the R.H. Ballard Gallery in Little Washington, VA.

Poole's stunning oil paintings feature American landscapes and beautifully composed still lifes. He was born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Virginia, and now resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico where he also has his studio.

Poole has exhibited extensively throughout the United States, including museum, juried, group and solo exhibitions. He is represented in over 350 private collections, and has completed numerous corporate commissions for organizations such as SONY, AT&T, DuPont, the National Geographic Society, and the National Audubon Society, among others.  His complete biography is listed after the images below.

Here are several paintings now on display in the gallery. Click on the descriptions to be taken to the website for pricing and to view more of his works.
