Glencoe Mansion, Museum & Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of the gallery show by portrait artist Teresa Regil, “A Painted Portrait of a Beloved. A Family Heirloom.” The show will be on display October 6 through December 4.
Teresa Regil discovered her passion for painting almost by accident after many years of being a mother, entrepreneur and dentist. She realized she had an ability, a talent, to draw the likeness of her favorite subjects: her family members.
Born in Mexico City, and retired from a long career as a pediatric dentist in Maryland, Teresa is now established in Radford as a happy Abuela (grandmother) and portrait artist. Self-taught, guided by masters such as John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt, she creates her portraits in oil and incorporates a myriad of techniques, including alla prima, indirect approach, and mixed media. Often her backgrounds are made with acrylics and the main subject or figure with oil.
Teresa Regil is generously donating one of her paintings for a silent auction to help benefit the museum. The painting is her master copy of a work by her artistic inspiration John Singer Sargent. The piece will be open for bidding throughout the length of the show, and the winner will be announced at the end of the show.
Everyone is welcome to visit the museum. There is no admission charge. “A Painted Portrait of a Beloved. A Family Heirloom.” will be on display through December 4.
