Arrowhead Gallery ETC’s June featured artists are Jamie Robertson and Wanda Schaertel. An artists’ reception will be held June 16 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the gallery.
Robertson studied art at Southern Utah University and Eastern Illinois University where she received her bachelor’s degree in studio art. Later, she obtained her master’s in fine art at the New York Academy of Figurative Art. Since graduating, she has taught art to students of all ages and currently teaches drawing and composition as well as design at Dixie State University. Robertson’s art focuses on foundation studies. She says that these studies have given her a structured way to see nature and teach others to draw from life.
After graduating from California State Fullerton in 1987 with a bachelor’s degree in illustration, Schaertel specialized in courtroom exhibits for lawyers and their experts, creating medical illustrations, technical diagrams, and 3D animations. She moved to Utah in 2013. In 2016, she began the online master’s program through Academy of Art University, San Francisco. Her goals are to become an art instructor at Dixie State University and create gallery work.
Arrowhead Gallery ETC is located at 68 E. Tabernacle St. in St. George.
