Nora Roberto

Wine Tasting Reception July 8th from 4-6PM

All Art Lover's Welcome

Nora began her pursuit of the arts as a young girl in her native country of Argentina. From an early age, she yearned to produce images well pleasing to the eye. One of the drawings for which she was awarded first prize in grammar school is on permanent display at Museo De Alcira Gigena Argentina in her home town. During high school, she was privately tutored by professor Dalia Mabel Fernandez, who guided her to obtain a degree in art at Escuela de Artes Rensel.

Here in the U.S., Nora obtained an Associate Degree in Fine Arts from Empire State College, a school accredited by Westchester Community College. She is an active member of the Putnam Arts Council, Dutchess Arts Council, and Arts on the Lake, and paints with the Hudson Valley Plein Air Painters.

Nora's work has been exhibited in galleries in the states of New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts, at such places as the Front Street Gallery in Patterson, NY, Proctor & Gamble in Bethel, CT, and JH Shelburne Fine Arts and Portrait Framing Gallery in Shelburne Falls, MA, among others.

Locally, her work has been shown at libraries in Mahopac, Katonah, Kent and Brewster, and at Cugini’s Restaurant, as well as in private exhibits and shows in both New York and Connecticut. She regularly displays her work to support non-profit organizations; examples include Friends of the Great Swamp (FrOGS) NY, the Merwinsville Hotel Restoration in CT, The Maplebrook School NY, and the New Canaan Teen Center.

What inspires Nora to paint is subjects in nature as they present themselves through the times and seasons. Her passion is color blending, the use of oil is her preferred medium, and she likes to focus on balance and harmony as she work.  Her landscapes have received acclaim for her color and flow.
