Robert Ross A to Z  Retrospective

May 5- June 26, 2022

This retrospective celebrates the life’s work of the legendary artist Robert Ross. Ross uses watercolor pigment, and pastel for large and small paintings and drawings, utilizing traditional and nontraditional surfaces to record the experience of direct observation of human form and landscape. Several of the most important works from his remarkable early years as an artist to the present day are included in this show. Significant beauty and depth are often missed by the casual viewer in works of art, such as sources and edges of light, implied lines, and textures. Therefore, this exhibition invites the audience to spend time with each of his works, paying attention to every little detail, especially those that are not immediately apparent. These small details, easily missed, interest Robert Ross the most.
