Romney Shelton Collins Exhibit at Carnegie Hall


Romney Shelton Collins is a native of Burke, VA. She is fortunate to enjoy a historic home in Greenbrier County, that she and her husband have restored. She credits drawing courses at the College of Southern Maryland (formerly the Charles County Community College) as spurring her interest in art. Romney teaches art on a regular basis in West Virginia as well as in Port St. Lucie, FL, where she resides during the winter months.

Beginning in 1981, Romney began a two year study in oil with Robert and June Anderson of Lewisburg. The artist has also taken workshops with acclaimed painter, Daniel E. Greene, OPA. The style of these artists is very traditional and solidly based on the principles of the European Masters. She has conducted Continuing Adult Education classes though the Greenbrier Community College Center of Bluefield State, in Lewisburg. She is a current member of the Palm City Art Association as well as a member of the Martin County Art Council in Stuart, FL. Romney has been selected by the University of Charleston as one of West Virginia’s top 100 women painters with work in permanent display at the university. She is a juried member of Tamarack in Beckley. Her work is available at these galleries: Marsh Rabbit Gallery, Jensen Beach, FL; Kittens Korner, White Sulphur Springs; and Seven Oaks Gallery, Warm Springs, VA. {{more}}
