Shown here is a sampling of the extensive oil replica collection by Robin Stanard on exhibit, including French Sky, the 1997 original by Gregg Kreutz.

Residents are invited to get a flavor of master artists through the stunning replica oil paintings of Robin Stanard. They will be shown at The Center at Colfax Library. The exhibit includes 28 sizable replicas of artwork being shown in museums throughout the world. Works range from Monet to Van Gogh, Pissaro to Picasso.

Stanard grew up in Colfax, eventually raising two daughters here and working in his family's carpentry business. While he found satisfaction in the creativity of designing and remodeling homes, he is very excited to again be focusing upon his art.

Stanard began drawing as a child and is self-taught, spending years practicing with pencils and paints. About three years ago, his daughters gave him some watercolors and colored pencils for Father's Day and the spark returned.

Stanard began an intense journey into the work of 20th Century artists and was inspired to replicate many of their works. He said, "Their paintings have the ability to generate great emotion in a different way for every person. I believe this is the true magic of art," he noted.

The "Replica Oil Paintings from Museums Around the World" will be at The Center from Sept. 9 - 30. Exhibit hours are Mondays-Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Thursdays-Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturdays-Sundays, 1-5 p.m. The Center at Colfax Library is located at 102 S. Main Street.
