Artist's work featured in Rockville

Sunday, April 1, 2012

A display featuring the photography of Rob Robbins will be featured at the Art Gallery in Rockville until April 24.
ROCKVILLE -- A new display featuring the photography skills of Rob Robbins is currently on display at the Art Gallery on the north side of the square in Rockville.

The one-man show will be available until April 24.

Robbins won Best of Show in last year's Associate Show.

He returned to his native Terre Haute after a 48-year hiatus.

"You can take the kid out of Terre Haute, but not Terre Haute out of the kid," is his motto.

He concentrates on capturing scenery and scenes just as he sees them, and is always looking for the unusual.

His work has graced the pages in the National Speleological Society, the Nature Conservancy, and on the covers of the programs for North Alabama Land Trust and the Wabash Valley Community Band.

A band from London, England, Shedload of Love, also saw a particular photo and asked to use it on their CD "Love and Affection."

Robbins has received many awards, including those from Columbia, Tenn., the Wabash Valley Art Guild, Covered Bridge Art Association, plus a digital memory project, "Visions and Voices," preserving the past and present for the future of Indiana State University.

The gallery is open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., daily, except Tuesday, when it is closed. It is also open 1-5 p.m., Sunday.

For more information, call 765-569-9422.
