Knickerbocker Prize Winner “Rhubarb” Original Painting SOLD

Original painting by artist Gail Niebrugge


“Rhubarb” original painting

Acrylic/watercolor 22″ x 30″ matted and framed under glass 32″ x 40″ SOLD

This painting won the Knickerbocker Award for Transparent Watercolor at the Knickerbocker Artists 36th Annual Open Exhibition, Salmagundi Club, New York, in 1986. Alaska artist Gail Niebrugge painted it from her neighbors garden in Copper Center, Alaska. With the continuous summer sunlight vegetables grow to huge sizes, and gardens are lush and plentiful. Funny, when she entered this painting in the All Alaska Juried Competition the visiting juror from Los Angeles commented that he wanted to see subjects that were very Alaskana, and not something you could find anywhere. Little did he know.

  1. Dear Gail,

    Brilliant painting! I love your skills using light and shadow. That painting could hold my interest for hours, then just as much each time I came back to it!

    That is so clever – love it!

    Kind regards,

  2. Noella!

    Thanks a bunch!


  3. I grew up in the south and never ate rhubarb until I moved to Alaska. So far we have not been able to get it to grow as well in the south. Can’t imagine a more Alaskan vegetable! Very nice painting.

  4. Jeanne;

    Thanks! Personally I don’t like the taste of rhubarb, but I love how it looks in the garden. Go figure.
