Join us to celebrate Robert Kennedy’s Studio Closing Exhibition
My Life in the Figure
Thursday, October 13; 5-8pm
Exhibition Dates: October 12-15, 2022
This exhibition is the culmination of the last 30 years of my work, first at Gallery 80808 and now Stormwater Studios.
My first opportunity to work from a model was when I enrolled in the Academia de’Belle Arte in Florence Italy at age 23. Since that time, I have worked in a variety of media painting and drawing always with a live model. It has remained my favorite subject all these 60 odd years.
Drawing from a model is never the same from one to another. The variety never fails to inspire me. No two are alike as the movement of the model presents a new image each time.
About the Artist:
Art has been in Robert Kennedy’s blood from an early age and he has pursued his interest in it for many years, first as a watercolor student then oils, acrylic, and charcoal.
For the last 32 years Kennedy has focused on the figure as a subject using charcoal and conte crayon on paper or acrylic on canvas as his medium. Working from the live model is the artist’s choice setting, which is available with the group About Face or in his studio at Stormwater Studios.
