Robert Hitzig Paintings and Paintings on Sculpture
Opening Reception Thursday, May 1, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.
The Gallery at River Arts is pleased to present Robert Hitzig: Paintings and Paintings on Sculpture May 1 - June 29, 2014 at the River Arts Center in Morrisville. There will be an opening reception Thursday, May 1, 5:00-7:00 p.m.
In addition to tinted shellac, Hitzig uses acrylic paints, oil paints, graphite, oil pastels, and epoxy in his recent mixed media paintings. Developing the surface, Hitzig uses scratches, tear out, saw marks, cuts, and other types of gouges to create more depth and " help create space for beautiful accidents".
Robert started his art career ten years ago after working for the US Environmental Protection Agency in Washington, DC. With undergraduate degrees in Geology and History as well as a graduate degree in Environmental Sciences, he became obsessed with creating art with wood while studying furniture making as a hobby in 1996. Though he has not taken any art classes since the eight grade, Robert has been informally studying art his whole life, nurturing a latent interest until he was able to dedicate himself full-time to his true passion in 2004. Robert lives in Montpelier, Vermont.
River Arts, a nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching the community through the arts, is located in Morrisville, VT.
