Robert Pittenger - 40 Years of Painting
Bob primarily paints landscapes designed to challenge notions of time and space and challenge the viewer to explore the concept of simple existence. In his large compositions, trees and houses take second place to the full space above them, co-mingling the abstract and realistic.
Pittenger studied art at the University of Michigan and was a Chinese translator in the U.S. Army before moving to New York City in 1962, where he lived for 45 years. He worked at the Guggenheim Museum and at several art galleries while painting in his Soho studio. He has had twelve solo exhibitions and has participated in numerous group shows. He moved to Sharon in 2007 where he lives with his wife, author, Carol Ascher.
The Artist Reception is on May 4th from 5 - 7 PM
