Robert Baum: Beyond Realism
May 10- August 15, 2013
Realistic, yet not completely true to life, Robert Baum pushes the boundaries of representational painting. Through the process of observation and painting, Baum creates loose brush strokes to transform his subjects in a way that adds an impressionistic ambiance. Baum’s paintings display an approach to representation that acknowledges conventions and moves beyond them whether it is a light-filled landscape, still life, or a figure study.
Baum’s childhood love of art was reignited during his tour of duty in Vietnam. When he returned he attended Rowan University where he received his master’s degree in education. Baum’s career in education was accented with writing and editing articles for several magazines. After he retired from teaching, Baum has been working exclusively on his artwork. Baum paints and sculpts in his studio located along the Great Egg Harbor River in Mays Landing, New Jersey.
Baum is an Artist Member of The Noyes Museum of Art of Stockton College in Oceanville, New Jersey, and the Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts in Millville, New Jersey. He exhibits widely throughout the mid-Atlantic region including the prestigious Phillips's Mill show in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
Sum of All Parts Guest Curated by Michelle Post
May 16 – July 28, 2013
Opening reception May 16, 6:00 – 9:00 pm at Stockton’s Kramer Hall
This exhibition celebrates the impressive creative forces in the sculpture world of the Mid-Atlantic region. Michelle Post guest-curates the exhibition that brings together six artists, many of whom Post has worked with at the Johnson Atelier and Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ. The sculpture presented varies widely in style, symbols, and subject, however all of the pieces are created from various parts that combine to form an overall piece. All are masterfully executed and are sure to engage, inspire and even surprise the viewer.
Millville sculptor David Carrow creates assemblies of found objects and collectibles. Carrow’s sculptures of various shapes, colors, and materials are constructed to invite participation. Atlantic City mixed-media artist Lennox Warner creates avant-garde works influenced by classical African motifs. Presented in the exhibition is an intricate assemblage of beads and marbles. The kinetic sculptures of Kenny Delio are intended to appear alive. Delio creates multi-piece sculptures with an interactive function that allows the viewer to participate in the completion of the work. Philadelphia artist Jack Larimore is a sculptor and furniture maker, creating objects that offer a dialog with nature. Eric Schultz finds discarded treasures “everywhere” to recycle into new art. Schultz presents a life size sculpture entitled “Mike and Luc,” in which he invites the viewer to imagine the dialog between the two characters. A constant innovator, Millville artist Michelle Post has created non-traditional portraits called “Tronies.” With this series, she challenges the cultural norms and standards of what is considered beauty. What are the physical features that make us “real” people? They represent no one in particular, but they are somehow, someone you know.
Coming soon to Atlantic City, at Fairmount & Mississippi Avenues: The Noyes Arts Garage Stockton College. The Arts Garage will bring a new arts district to Atlantic City with a mission to promote education, provide resources for emerging artists, and enrich the community.
