Reception for Robert Ross, A to Z Retrospective
Art Ventures welcomes you to our First Thursday Reception for “Robert Ross, A to Z – Retrospective” on June 2 from 5pm
Art Ventures welcomes you to our First Thursday Reception for “Robert Ross, A to Z – Retrospective” on June 2 from 5pm to 8pm. This exhibition will be up at the Art Ventures gallery until June 26, 2022. For this reception, Robert Ross will be presenting a short Artist Talk regarding his body of work, and artistic practices and techniques.
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.
Light refreshments and wine will be provided by Art Venture, and Bentonville Brewing Company will be onsite serving two generously donated kegs of beer. Attendees are advised to bring ID.
Limited parking is available at the gallery, so we encourage all guests to use our free shuttle pickup, which begins at 4:45 p.m. on the Fayetteville Downtown Square at the intersection of Church and Center.
(Thursday) 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
