Art at McIntire

In keeping with the tradition of Thomas Jefferson's model and the McIntire School of Commerce's vision of developing well-rounded students, we support the diversity of art and its interaction with commerce. The John P. and Stephanie F. Connaughton Gallery, located on the third floor of Robertson Hall, is the perfect space for showcasing art generated by McIntire and UVA students. Featured exhibits in this art gallery are on a rotating basis and contingent upon the McIntire Art and Commerce (MAC) Committee's approval.

Lyndi Angermeier's Artist Statement

Lyndi Angermeier's Artist Statement

Lyndi Angermeier has been a professional artist for 33 years. Her childhood was spent in Florida and teen years in Heidelberg, Germany. Frequent trips to museums throughout Europe nurtured her appreciation of the arts. Returning to the United States for college, she graduated with a Master’s in Psychology, yet the pull toward the arts was stronger.

She went on to pursue studies at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts. New Orleans provided her with an abundance of architecture and gardens. Her oils with dappled light gained appeal with the Garden District residents, and she became one of the highest selling artists at the Carol Robinson Gallery for many years. Her career as an artist was off to a good start.

In her 30s, she relocated to California, where she painted for 20 years on the Monterey Peninsula and along the Big Sur coast. She exhibited at the Carmel Art Association, as well as at several other local galleries. As docent for the Monterey Museum of Art, she was exposed to art history and the inspiring paintings of the California Impressionists. 

Lyndi’s current landscape paintings have evolved from her study and love of nature and the effects of sunlight to now include the Shenandoah Valley. She has participated in many solo, group, and juried exhibitions in Louisiana, California, Massachusetts, and Virginia. Her work is included in private, medical, and corporate collections throughout the United States and Europe. Her large pieces are particularly sought after by interior designers in Charlottesville and Richmond, VA.
