FIVE DECADES IF ABSTRACTION - A Retrospective: Robert Rector Event Details
"FIVE DECADES OF ABSTRACTION"
Louisiana artist, Robert Rector, hosts his first retrospective featuring 50 years of artwork at The Gallery at Manship Theater within the Shaw Center for the Arts in downtown Baton Rouge.
"I am influenced by elements of the natural world and elements of our man-made world and the relationships created. I try to recreate or interpret these elements in an abstract way using light, color, texture, and the medium of paint. To me the medium is an integral part of the object. I want the viewer to see the paint as the medium, the process, and the product. I am always searching for new ways to explore and apply this medium."-Robert Rector.
Rector will be on exhibit from March 10th, 2017 - May 6th, 2017.
Join us for an evening celebrating Roberts work on March 17th from 6:30-8:30. This event is free and open to the public.
