Robert Stuart To Show Art at Hunt

January 29, 2004

“Joy Blooms,” an exhibition of recent paintings by Robert Stuart, will be on view in Hunt Gallery at Mary Baldwin University February 9-27. Stuart explores nonrepresentational painting as “a means for experiencing the transcendent,” drawing inspiration from nature, “observed reality,” and his imagination. His abstract paintings reflect an intense interest in working with light, color combinations, and textured surfaces.

Stuart has a B.F.A from Boston University School for the Arts and a M.F.A from James Madison University. Since his schooling, he has won numerous awards and shown his work in many group and solo exhibitions. His work is in many corporate collections, including those at General Electric, Bell South, and Bank of America.

An opening reception will be held for the artist Monday, February 9, 4:30-6:00 p.m. in Hunt Gallery. Hunt Gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary work in all media by regionally and nationally recognized artists. The gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., during the college’s academic year.
