Kailua Village Artists Featured
Artist in August is Robert S. Williams

Robert has been creating art for the last 45 years.  He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Print Making from Indiana University in 1978.  After graduating, he began to work in sculpture and painting with acrylics.  He started exhibiting his work in 1980.  Robert was represented by galleries in Indianapolis and New Harmony, Indiana; in Chicago and San Francisco, until the early 1990s.  He was included in numerous juried exhibitions in the mid-west.  His art is in several corporate collections from those years.

During the 1990’s Robert acquired another degree, in Occupational Therapy, and worked until 2010 as an Occupational Therapist.  After retiring, he re-immersed himself in creating art once again.  This year, Robert joined the Kailua Village Artists Gallery, now the only gallery with which he has a relationship.  The work at Kailua Village Artists includes several of his earlier works, as well as his new work since moving to the Big Island.

Robert's current works are acrylic paintings on paper and canvas.  They are of local places to which he feels an attachment.  They are areas in which he tends to spend time and not just a place to go to paint.  He reflects, “I infuse my feelings for the places I paint and make my unique process of painting part of the work.  I also paint more personal images that deal with my day-to-day life.”  Robert has giclee prints of his original paintings available at the gallery, so they may be taken home in people’s luggage and are more affordable than the original paintings.

To meet the artist, Robert S. Williams, and learn more about his work, he will be working at the gallery on Tuesdays, August 7, 14, 21 and 28, Wednesday, August 22, Thursday, August 9, and Sunday, August 26, 2018.
