JULY 4–AUGUST 29, 2021: STARS IN THEIR COURSES: TIM TYLER AND HIS STUDENTS

ABOUT TIM TYLER

TIM TYLER of Bella Vista, Arkansas, is a painter, sculptor, writer, and instructor who spent his childhood in small towns in California, Arizona, and Oklahoma. In his youth he hauled hay, worked cattle, and drove a tractor. At age fourteen, a rancher commissioned him to paint a large landscape of a beloved mountain, so in truth, he was never an “amateur painter.” He began sculpting after his freshman year of college, and when he was nineteen years old, Trailsides Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona consigned his work. He has worked as an illustrator for a Fortune 500 company, as an oil refinery engineer, and as a journeyman carpenter. He became a full-time artist at age 30, by which time he was married and had three of his eventual five children.

Tim’s work has been exhibited in over seventy galleries nationwide and internationally, and in scores of art museums. He has garnered hundreds of awards, and began teaching workshops in 2001. In addition to the U.S., he has taught in Italy, France, Scotland, and Ireland. In November of 2019 he relocated to Italy and Montenegro to write a book about art, returning home in April of 2020.

ABOUT STUDIO 7

Studio 7 at Village on the Creeks in Rogers, Arkansas, is where Tim's students have been congregating since 2013. The studio is owned and operated by Tania Knudson, offering classes for all ages and skill levels. Tim presented awards to paintings by Tania and Judi in separate competitions long before joining the studio, which came about a dozen years later. Judi and Tania both teach at Studio 7. Neither are his students, but he proudly owns artwork of both artists. Judi is part of this exhibit through affiliation, affinity, and fondness.
