To award-winning artist Robert Eberle, the world is a place of beauty to be explored and captured in oils. His landscapes win acclaim for their ethereal colors, expressionistic brush strokes and poetic quality. In addition to “Best of Show” in 2011 and 2003 in the prestigious Hoosier Salon exhibition, Eberle’s works have garnered top awards in every major art exhibition in Indiana.
Eberle’s painting journeys began with his travels across the state of Indiana as one of five artists selected for the “Painting Indiana” project in which he and four other artists set out to depict scenes of Indiana’s ninety-two counties. Their oil paintings were compiled into the book Painting Indiana published by Indiana University Press in 1999 and later sold at a record-setting auction in 2000. An outgrowth of the project was the establishment of the Indiana Plein Air Painters Association, a group which today boasts over 200 artists.
Two-time winner of “Best of Show” at the New Harmony First Brush of Spring paint outs, Eberle enjoys the challenge of painting on location. His work displays his ability to capture the moments of fleeting light and shadow as he conveys the poetry of his subjects.
