American abstract artist Robert S. Neuman’s career spanned more than six decades and stretched geographically from his birthplace of Idaho to the San Francisco Bay Area to coastal Maine. Though mostly known for his colorful, energetic paintings, Neuman was also prolific in printmaking and mixed media. Robert S. Neuman: Works on Paper presents various prints and other paper-based artworks from the artist’s long career, showcasing his adept talent at translating his visions across multiple different media.
The exhibition also celebrates the release of Pieces of the World: The Art and Life of Robert S. Neuman, a new documentary which gathers in-person interviews with scholars, family, and friends, archival and personal photographs, and images of numerous artworks to create an intimate and compelling portrait of the artist. A screening of the documentary will be held at Childs Gallery on Thursday, September 22, 6-8pm.
Robert S. Neuman: Works on Paper is on view in Childs Gallery’s upstairs Print Department, August 4 through October 1, 2022, with an opening reception Sunday, August 21, 2-4pm.
