BC Robbins Art Opening

BC Robbins Art Opening

Saturday, February 18

2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

BC Robbins new artworks are on view for the month of February 2023 in the Dobbs Ferry Public Library Community Room Gallery.

Open during library hours.

“My new work on display focuses on the continuation of a creative process I call Brush Stroke Meditations. I work at slowing down my overactive mind by appreciating the physical and mental act of painting one line at a time. This process helps me to live in the present moment. Each line is a free-flowing gesture that does not touch the one next to it but is essential to creating the whole image. I find the repetition of this process comforting. The painted lines slowly build up to a composition where decisions are continually made at the moment. I work toward creating an image that will move my senses and pique my curiosity upon viewing.”

Bruce Christopher Robbins is an artist and teacher who works in whatever medium feels best suited for the project being explored. With an equal passion for the visual and performing arts, puppetry became a way to investigate and combine his many interests. He has an art studio in Dobbs Ferry, NY, and is also an art teacher at The Masters School for the past thirty-one years.

Find out more at his website.
