Architectural Foundation Gallery
Opening Reception: Friday, November 4, 5-7 p.m.
The Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara is pleased to announce a new exhibition: Rob Robinson – Landscapes in Oil – California and Europe. An opening reception with the artist will take place on Friday, November 4th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. All are welcome. The exhibition will continue through December 7th.
A Santa Barbara native, Rob Robinson is the grandson of the late Mildred Bryant Brooks (prominent etcher of the early 1900’s) and son of the late charismatic and respected Santa Barbara architect, Frank Robinson. Rob’s inspiration to paint is rooted in his desire to create something of lasting value and while doing so, to find a little peace in the hustle-bustle of everyday life: “Painting is an engrossing experience for me, a chance to quietly observe and disappear into the natural world, to be alive in it and return with something to share”.
Rob has painted oil landscapes for 18 years and is a long time member of Santa Barbara Studio Artists, Santa Barbara Art Association, California Art Club, and Oil Painters of America. A frequent guest artist with the Oak Group, he credits Michael Drury, Hank Pitcher, John Comer, Marcia Burtt, Meredith and Whitney Abbott, Jorgen Hansen, Ray Strong, Ray Roberts, Frank Serrano, the Oak Group and many others for his inspiration, learning and success. Rob lives in Santa Barbara with his wife Allison and their cat Remo.
The AFSB Gallery is located in the historic Acheson House on the corner of Garden and East Victoria Streets in Santa Barbara. Regular gallery hours are Saturdays from 1 to 4pm, and by appointment.
