RoldandeMoras Gladys Portrait CMYK

International award-winning artist Gladys Roldán-de-Moras is known for her paintings that, in a unique style, portray vivid Spanish traditions, including courageous Mexican escaramuzas daringly riding horses sidesaddle in a vivid rodeo-style festival, flamenco señoritas clad in Andalusian dresses that appear to playfully flap in the wind, and delicate damsels in intimate poses. Having lived in San Antonio for over thirty years, she finds great inspiration in representing her love of the Spanish culture passed down to her by her maternal grandfather, a proud lifelong charro who helped promote Charreria as the official national sport in Mexico. 

Roldán-de-Moras’s work is in many important private and public collections and has been published in Fine Art Connoisseur, Art of the West, Southwest Art, Western Art Collector, Western Art and Architecture, Architectural Digest European Edition, and many more. 

Recent notable achievements include the 2021 Sam Houston Award for Best Painting and 2017 David Crockett Award for Artists’ Choice at Night of Artists at the Briscoe Western Art Museum; the 2018 Grand Prize Best in Show at Full Sun: American Women Artists Illuminate the Haggin Museum in Stockton, California; the 2016 Museum Purchase Award and Director’s Choice New Artist Award at Cowgirl Up! at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum in Wickenburg, Arizona; and the 2015 Artists’ Choice Award at Quest for the West at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art in Indianapolis. 

She is a Master Signature Member of both the American Impressionist Society and American Women Artists and a member of Oil Painters of America.
