VICTORIA BROYLES, a local Carbondale artist, specializes landscapes with broad skies and an “old world feel.” She seeks to create work that is timeless, nostalgic, and a window into simpler times. She has been influenced by her grandfather’s artwork, visits at an early age to the National Gallery and other museums, and an extended study of art in Italy. She is also inspired by a broad spectrum of early and contemporary artists, from Vermeer and Sargent, to Daniel Sprick and Adrian Gottlieb. She frequently works on site, paying close attention to color study. Broyles explains that she loves to create paintings that really “capture a moment in time.” In addition to her works at Main Street Gallery, Broyles always welcomes commissions.
