About the Artist

 

Alberta Geyer
(Click Specific Painting to Enlarge)

  Alberta Geyer grew up in Huntington, NY on Long Island. Drawn to art since childhood, it was while in high school that the desire to paint in oils crystallized in her heart and soul. The depth and richness of oils spoke to her, as did the breadth and beauty of the representational legacy of the masters.

After graduation, Alberta worked in Manhattan, while attending night courses at Parsons School of Design. Marriage and children brought her back to Long Island, where she continued her art studies at a local college. Alberta attended the Stevenson Academy of Painting in 1992. It was there that she encountered “academic” training for the first time. Subsequently, she began studying under the tutelage of Gregg Kreutz, instructor at the Arts Students League. Though her time with him was brief, its impact was enduring, as it introduced Alberta to the concept of chiaroscuro (
Italian for lightdark and an artistic technique with bold contrasts between light and dark for dramatic effect) that continues to inform her work today.  

After moving to New Hampshire in 1995, Alberta enrolled at The Ingbretson Studio in Manchester; a private atelier focusing on academic training and the style of “the Boston School.” Her four years at the Ingbretson Studio were invaluable in the development of her artistic voice, and she continues to aspire to the ideals of truth and beauty that she discovered there.
