Robert Keith Black

Was looking through the show archives at Lee Hansley gallery, which are still up even though Lee passed last year, and was drawn to Robert’s piece below. If you’re interested in learning more about this Raleigh-based practitioner who used the Strawvalley design complex to bring Modernist Art to the area in the 1950s, you can check out Design Duet.

Herb Jackson

As I’ve written about in my bio, I first began to think of myself as an artist in undergraduate school. Having spent that time in the Charlotte area, there were of course a number of Herb’s pieces around and about; as an aspiring artist, I was impressed at the time with the maturity of his voice, as his paintings are easily recognizable´┐╝. Photographs also never really convey the physicality of the surfaces of his paining either. And like Jason he’s originally from Raleigh.
