About American Artist Rex Robinson

“This painting gave me remembrance of childhood coaching by my hunting father.  Our quiet treks though the woods were more to witness the wildlife and God’s glorious design in nature.”
Rex Robinson
American artist and naturalist Rex Robinson’s professional goal to “paint America” has persisted for over forty years. The artist has completed hundreds of original paintings and sculptures in ongoing portfolios of Kentucky, Bluegrass, Southeast, and now Western subjects.  He states, “the urgency to respond to the endangerment of unique historic sites, scapes, gardens, and representative genres of America’s vast variety presents a stimulating challenge to recreate and express though visual art, making an heirloom that tells its story.”
Exhibiting his works in over sixty solo and many more group exhibitions and competitions across the country has led to inclusion in corporate, private, and museum collections.  Robinson produces sketches, paintings, low/high relief paintings, murals, sculpture, and combinations to create a themed environment. He earned a B.A. in Art Education from Kentucky Wesleyan College and earned an M.A. from Western Kentucky University.  He has conducted a dozen years of residency for the Kentucky Arts Council, fifteen years as an Art Educator in the Owensboro Public Schools, and continues programs at his newly opened Rex Robinson Visual Art Center located at 425 West 5th Street, Owensboro, KY 42301.
