“Painting in oils with passion and joy for over 20 years. Always striving to capture the essence and beauty of a scene under dramatic light.”
Margaret Buchte is a local resident of Great Barrington, MA and a self-taught artist who draws her inspiration from the beauty of the Berkshires and beyond.
Streetscapes, historic buildings, places of interest along with nature also an irresistible draw as well as landscapes of mountains, rivers and seascapes. She also paints portraits of people in oils and pastels and charcoal. Animal portraits and house portraits are also work she accepts for commissions. Mediums that she enjoys working in are oils, pastels and charcoal.
Margaret has displayed her work with the Lenox Fine Art Gallery for five years until they closed. She has had solo exhibition shows at Berkshire South, Great Barrington; Lee Library; Mason Library in Great Barrington and the Douglas Library in Canaan, CT. CTSB TV showed two televised interviews on Margaret discussing her artwork on two different occasions. One was held at her solo show at Berkshire South and the other was held in the Lee Library. Margaret’s work has been accepted in numerous juried shows in the Berkshire area, most recently, the Berkshire Arts Festival, at Butternut, Great Barrington, MA, and her painting titled ‘Finding A Good Spot’ was displayed on one of the Berkshire Arts Festival’s posters. Margaret has accepted commissions to paint in oil and pastels and charcoal portraits of people and homes with landscape and successfully completed the commissioned artwork to the satisfaction of her clients.
Her highly sought after ‘Note Cards’ and paper products from her collection of over 70 oil painting images are available all over Berkshire County: most notably at Tanglewood, Shaker Village, The Mount, Norman Rockwell Museum, and Red Lion Inn.
Margaret continues to paint with a ‘Quirky Twist’ for her subject matter with much enthusiasm and the diversity of her work comes through in a most delightful way and promises to be a valuable collector’s item in years to come.
