Brenda Scott Harburger combines a command of form with a sensitive feeling for color and light. Working
in oil, watercolor and sculpture, she creates powerful expressions of a wide variety of subjects, both
animate and inanimate. Be it a landscape, still life, human or animal portraiture, she searches for some
unique aspect that interests her, and she hopes interests the viewer too.
Her distinctive style, expressing vivid representationalism with an emotional quality that is highly personal,
has been called Impressionalistic Realism.
Holding a Bachlor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree from the University of Colorado, Boulder, she further studied
at the Los Angeles School of Design in California and the Art Students League in New York City. For 25
years an art director in her own advertising.agency in the Hudson Valley, she retained her devotion to the
visual arts. Four years ago Brenda returned to her original love, painting and sculpture. Ms Harburger has
previously exhibited in area art shows including both Middletown and Newburgh SUNY Orange campuses,
Arts Council of Orange County, Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum, Albert Wisner Library in Warwick
NY and, last year as an Immerging Artist, at Walkill River School. Prepared with all new landscape oil
paintings, mostly of the Mid-Hudson Valley, she will again exhibit at Wallkill River School as a
Representative Artist during this coming October.
