Linda Armantrout


Linda Armantrout received a B.A. in Studio Art at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her painting teachers were abstract expressionists who had studied at Black Mountain College. Her foundation in Art History came from John Sloane and William Alcott. Later, in Denver, she studied basic design and color theory with Edith Niblo, and then the ideas of 20th Century painting fell into place.

Painting for Linda is about gesture, color, and relationships within the frame. She uses the elements of art and principles of design to support idea and communication. Teaching, since 1989, has made Linda think more deeply about art.

In 2008, Linda’s body of work was shown as “Horse Power as Spirit” in a solo show in Boulder, Colorado. It was also shown at the NCAR Gallery 1, at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, in Boulder, Colorado. Current work evolved from this series and explores connections to ancestors by using Rock Art and the image of the horse.

Linda has been encouraged by curators, Sally L. Perisho, Ken Bloom, and Jerry Allen Gilmore.
