Charles H. Pabst


« Back to Artist Gallery

A native of Santa Clara, California, Charles graduated from Arizona State University in 1971 with a degree in Fine Arts. He chose to remain in Arizona where he worked as a commercial artist for seven years before making the transition to painting full time as a fine artist.

His first sellout show of 30 paintings was with the El Presidio Gallery of Tucson in 1982. Since then he has sold out all his shows throughout the country. He has exhibited in Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, Carmel, Scottsdale, Santa Fe, Jackson Hole, Dallas, Tucson, and Vermont. A favorite among collectors of landscape art, his award-winning works can be found in private and corporate collections throughout the world.

Paintings by Charles Pabst reflect the calm command and intimate knowledge he has of his subject matter. He is a family-oriented man who thrives on the interaction with his large family and circle of friends. His paintings convey the peaceful solitude and natural tranquility of the American Southwest, the history of which he has studied extensively.

Pabst has received numerous awards over the years. Robert W. Brown's Index Of Southwest Art has continuously rated his work as collectible and Pabst has been featured in articles in Southwest Art Magazine as well as Art of the West Magazine.
