The Fishers Arts Council is presenting an exhibit by noted artist Rebecca Robinson entitled, “The Art of Bridging the Gap,” in The Alcove on the second floor of The Art Gallery at City Hall in Fishers.
“As long as I can remember, art has moved me,” said Robinson, who lives in Indianapolis. “Expressing myself with my artwork allows me to convey a thought, an emotion, a personal experience or an important message. As an artist, it is my duty to push the envelope and create artwork that sparks a dialog and remains timeless.”
Robinson studied fashion design in Atlanta and continued her education at North Carolina Central University, where she majored in art/visual communications and graduated with high honors. In 2019, she began the initial stages of forming her nonprofit, “ONE ARRT,” which will become the first Black-owned art supply brand that specifically supports all artists, art organizations, art education, museums/galleries and communities in need that would prosper with proper funding and resources.
Her exhibit of 11 paintings include stained glass, acrylic on canvas and concrete, tar and white latex. The exhibit opened in January and runs through March.
The Art Gallery at City Hall, One Municipal Drive, is open daily Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., excluding holidays.
