Lindsey Oberg

I am a mixed media encaustic painter. I combine old objects that are reminiscent of the past with my own personal history as a way for me to imagine back and have second chance or alternate experiences in life.  At the same time, this allows me to give a new life and a new story to each and every object that I use.  Each piece already has a history, already had a life, and reflecting back on that inspires my art.  I think about who might have owned it, or where it might have been, traveling back in time and ending with the object being given a whole new meaning and significance-- these forgotten memories that may have sat in drawers neglected for decades, now transformed and revitalized. 

LIFE Drawing/Painting Session 

Mondays only from 12:30- 4:30pm 

Begins September 22, 2014 and will be an ongoing service to the community

Cost and how to pay: $10 for the first two hours, $5 for each additional hour you stay. Please bring cash only with correct change. Also bring your own painting or drawing materials. 

Each session is four hours with one long pose (short breaks included). Stay for only two hours and pay $10 or stay for additional hours (up to four total) for $5 extra each additional hour.

This figure session is open to the public as a part of its on-going service to the community of Charlottesville and the surrounding counties. There is no instruction and no commitment to continue to come consistently (although you WILL want to).
