MARCH 18-MAY 6, 2022
RECEPTION SAT APRIL 2, 3-5PM
We begin our Spring 2022 season with an exhibition of recent oil paintings by Robert Cronin (Falls Village). A reception for the artist will take place on Saturday, April 2, 3-5PM.
About four years ago, just before falling asleep at night, artist Robert Cronin found himself doing small line drawings in pencil on 8 x 6″ pads of Fabriano paper. They were like little prayers. Laying on his side, with the day’s cares and thoughts falling away, he was experiencing a freedom in drawing unlike at any other time.
A figure might start as just a line that suggests the bend of a wrist and would simply go from there into whatever figure wished to be discovered from this. Only one per night. Sometimes it was only one continuous line. Always a nocturnal surprise, usually followed by very good sleep.
From these simple line drawings, only a select few would be considered good enough for scaling up with absolutely no corrections in proportions or details, to canvases in which form and color would come to celebrate these images. This exhibition represents only these results.
Robert Cronin received his degrees at RISD and Cornell University and has taught at Bennington College and Brown University. His work is in the permanent collections of many major museums including the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the National Academy Museum (New York), the Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburgh) and the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston). The artist’s webpage is at robertcroninart.com.
