ARMONK, N.Y. Rosalind Oesterle, of Armonk, will display some of her best watercolor paintings at the Armonk Outdoor Art Show Sept. 24-25.
Oesterle is no stranger to this particular show, which is entering its 50th year in Armonk.
Ive been in the show since back when it was behind town hall a long time ago, Oesterle said. Its grown every year and the quality of art keeps improving constantly.
In 2009 Oesterle received the first-place award for the shows watercolor category and in 2010 she, once again, placed first in watercolor at the Mystic Art Festival.
Of all the shows Oesterle has attended throughout the years, she said The Armonk Outdoor Art Show is the best.
It gets a great crowd and its a beautifully run show, Oesterle said. Its probably the best and highest quality of all the shows Ive done and its extremely well organized. The committee and volunteers are terrific.
Paintings by Oesterle have been exhibited in the juried shows of the American Watercolor Society, the Hudson Valley Art Association, The Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, The National Arts Club, The Salmagundi Club and Audubon Artists. She is also a juried member of the Hudson Valley Art Association, The Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club and a Signature Member of the American Watercolor Society.
Oesterle began painting in watercolor when she, her husband, and daughter spent summers in northern Vermont where she developed rural themes and nature studies. Nature and contemporary paintings continue to be her focus.
Her credentials as an artist go back to her college days when she attended Skidmore College and graduated with a major in art. She then continued her art education at Columbia University where she studied drawing and painting.
Oesterle also attended workshops with Ed Whitney, Claude Croney, Don Andrews and other well-known watercolorists.
