Something So Personal About Rich Robinson's Abstract Artwork

Maybe you wanted to make it to the opening event for Rich Robinson’s art show, and if you were lucky, you were able to be there. Either way, it was great to see Rich sharing his art and talking about his process. There’s something very personal about this work. There’s a vibrancy and movement to the oil on board paintings imbued with symbolism and soul.

As the co-founder of the seminal rock band, The Black Crowes, many people know Rich Robinson as a guitarist, songwriter and musician. His new band, Magpie Salute, has been on a big tour across the US and Europe, and we were fortunate to have them in town for a concert the following night. It was really nice to see how his band mates showed up to support him at the art show.

Rich is a true talent both with his music and his artwork. If you might have an interest in owning one of his paintings, please reach out. If you’d like to see the exhibit in its entirely or receive a list of paintings, again just let me know.

A partial showing of the artwork is on display through October at Cambria Gallery, 3096 Roswell Rd, Atlanta, GA 30305. Hours: Monday to Friday 10 to 6 and Saturday 10 to 5.

The thing people don't talk about when buying art

You’re decorating. Maybe you hire a designer, maybe you enjoy doing it yourself. When it comes to buying the artwork for your home, there’s something people don’t talk about. It may be something you’ve never identified, but deep down you feel it. Buying art is a commitment.

It’s a commitment to have a long term relationship with a piece. LTR. No wonder you are hesitant.

This art is going to say something about you... about your aesthetics and your taste. It’s going to make an impression when others come visit.

More importantly, you’re gong to live with it - for a very long time!  No wonder you have to fall in love.

Like the proverbial how to balance your checkbook, how to choose art is not something most of us are born knowing.. Or taught in school. 

Yet over the years, I’ve found people know what they like... what appeals to them… and what they can live with.. want to live with. There's an art to discovering it, a mix of listening and observing, a bit of trial and error.  And eventually it takes shape, and we find that piece that speaks to them and never grows old.

I know that some people want to know the story of the piece, while others want to know the artist’s story or process. I know that some are drawn to colors, textures, movement or light. Yet all are drawn to an underlying emotion, a palpable connection.

I want to let people know that it’s okay to start from where you are - as someone passionate and versed in art - or newly curious with a budding desire to find something wonderful and unexpected.

I love to help in this journey - cognizant of what will bring you a connection, that spark and inspiration that will let you fall in love, and develop a lasting relationship with art.
