ROBERTA LYNN ROSE’S ON THE EDGE OF URBAN OPENS AT THE FOUNDRY ART CENTRE
May 1 – June 26, 2021
The Foundry Art Centre is pleased to announce the opening of On the Edge of Urban, an exhibition by Roberta Lynn Rose. Rose’s highly textured mixed media paintings are designed to change the perspective of the viewer. They are created with a combination of materials – most notably acrylic gels and mediums, wood, clay, encaustic, and rice paper. The sculptural aspects of the paintings –from keys to coins to tumbleweeds – are often created from stencils and molds and are never what they first appear to be.
Roberta Lynn Rose is an award-winning artist originally from southeast Missouri, and has a B.S. in both Industrial Arts and Art Education from Southeast Missouri State. Her residency as a studio artist at the Foundry Art Centre has allowed her to expand on her artistic boundaries, culminating in her current body of work.
“We’re excited to now have a rotating exhibition schedule featuring our own studio artists in the Ameristar Gallery. Roberta’s ability to subtly capture photorealism and sculpt objects to perfection is truly impressive. The work really must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. Roberta’s practice is an excellent example of the wide breadth, scope, and talent of the artists we have at the Foundry,” says Sean FitzGibbons, Executive Director.
On the Edge of Urban is now open during regular hours in the Ameristar Gallery, the home gallery of the Foundry Art Centre’s studio artists.
