Exhibition Details and Rental Information

      

Overview:  This exhibit, which includes approximately 40 works, examines the development of Pennsylvania artist Rob Evans' artistic career over four decades. Beginning with early works from his college years at Syracuse University studying under Jerome Witkin, the exhibit follows his transition to a mature, personal and unique artistic voice as he eventually moved to his maternal grandparent's property on a ridge overlooking the Susquehanna River near Wrightsville, PA, a location where he would remain, raise a family and maintain a studio for his entire career. Most of the works in the exhibit portray this property and the surrounding Susquehanna Valley in some form - ranging from early drawings and paintings from his psychologically charged "Seven Rooms" series which examined the interior spaces in the farmhouse, to narrative works which metaphorically incorporate the local flora and fauna into large scale multi-paneled triptychs and altarpieces, to more direct plein air and observational studies of the landscape, clouds, weather and natural artifacts discovered on walks around the property. 

 

Description:

Approximately 40 framed works in a variety of media including oil and acrylic paintings, watercolors, pastel and graphite drawings, mixed media works, lithographs, digital prints and sketchbooks. Works range in size from 90 inches wide to miniatures just 4 inches wide.
