Dee Roberts featured artist for July


Butterfield Garage Gallery will present Dee Roberts as its featured artist for July.

Roberts is highly recognized for her diverse skills. During July, her nature-inspired works will be on display throughout the gallery. An artist talk at 6 p.m. on First Friday, July 1, will present an opportunity to hear about her inspirations and processes.

Roberts’ goal as an artist is to catch the spirit of what she sees, in abstract form as well as through naturalistic nature and wildlife paintings. Regardless of the medium, her finished works are stunning. She works flawlessly with pastels, watercolor, collage and acrylic, and has garnered many top awards around Florida and Georgia with each of them.

She consistently surprises the viewer with the strength and confidence in her work. With minimal brushstrokes her subjects come to life, seemingly ready to jump off the canvas.

Her work has been displayed in all the major museums and galleries in the Jacksonville area. Roberts had a two-person show at the Cummer and has art in the permanent collections of the University of North Florida, St. Johns Country Day School, at AT&T and in the homes of many private collectors. 

Roberts went to the Philadelphia College of Art with a major in Illustration. She has won numerous awards for best painting, best pastel, best figure and best watercolor painting. In 2010, she was named Watercolor Artist of the Year.

She has attained signature status in the Florida Watercolor Society and was juried into the National Watercolor Society’s 2014 International Watercolor Show.

She has had several important solo shows and currently shows at Butterfield Garage Art Gallery, located at 137 King St., St. Augustine.
