Robert Harding Jr.: Art from the Heart
September 4 - November 8, 2020

A New York Native, Harding has explored art all his life, experimenting with nearly every media since childhood.

“Visual art silently shows us all that we might recognize in ourselves,” said Harding. Driven by personal experiences, the earliest at age six; losing his father in WWII as well as his own time in the military infuses his works with raw emotion and energy.

He received a BA in Philosophy at Rutgers University and an MFA at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. He has exhibited internationally and taught at the New York School of Interior Design.
