ABERDEEN, Wash. - An art show entitled “Visual Stories” featuring the works of Robert Hunter will open Wednesday, December 1, 2010 and run through January 31, 2011 at the Aberdeen Timberland Library.
An artist’s reception will be held December 1 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the gallery area at the Market Street entrance to the library. Robert Hunter was a visual arts instructor at Aberdeen High School (AHS) from 1979 until 2005. His awards include a fellowship to the Rhode Island School of Design, The Governor’s Centennial Award, The Christa McAuliffe Award for Excellence in Education, and the first instructor to be recognized by the Renaissance Program at AHS as “Teacher of the Month.”
The art show features new abstract paintings and photo montages begun over a year ago by Mr. Hunter.
One particular piece, entitled “The Legend of Kurt Cobain,” is the only work he has created of his former art student. Mr. Hunter said, “I enjoyed expressing in visual language what one perspective of his life was.” A percentage of the sales from “Visual Stories” will be donated to The Kurt Cobain Memorial Committee to assist in the building of a Grays Harbor youth center. To purchase items from the art show, contact Mr. Hunter directly.
The Aberdeen Timberland library is located at 121 E Market Street. For more information, call 533-2360 or go to www.TRL.org.
