Hedy O’Beil, a New York City native, attended art schools and studied with several renowned artists, including with Reuben Tam at the Brooklyn Museum of Art School. She later received her BS from Empire State College and an MA from Goddard College in Vermont.
O’Beil’s paintings can best be described as gestural abstraction, and are unique in the use of her signature palette that makes adroit use of rich pinks, blues, and yellows layered in perfect harmony with ethereal grays and translucent whites. Her work is a study in the tension between control and unbridled exuberance, as if watching an improvised jazz masterpiece unfold before your eyes. In addition to her painting, O’Beil has been an active contributor to the New York City area art scene, giving lectures, art tours and writing reviews for several publications.
She has an extensive exhibition record, and her work is held in several collections, including the Library of Congress. O’Beil’s work has been recognized with many awards and honors, and has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant, The American Academy of Arts and LetterLetters, Florsheim Art Fund, and the Reger Foundation.
