Very few artists are ever bestowed with diplomatic honours, the keys to the city, or even credited with representing the soul of a place. Robert Blenderman, however, is one of those rare artists. After nearly 60 years capturing the spirit if Kingston in paint, Blenderman hasn’t yet been given the key to the city, but he has amassed a well-deserved following of admirers and collectors. Of his work and the adopted home which continues to inspire him, Blenderman says, “In my paintings I try to capture the essence of Kingston’s urban uniqueness and Canada’s abundant natural beauty.”
Blenderman’s tireless imagination is hardly exhausted by local streetscapes and landscapes. Realistic, classically styled still lives and wildly expressive abstracts have also been the subject of his attention over the years.
Through a lifelong dedication to developing his natural gift, along with his admirably disciplined focus, Blenderman has produced and impressive ouvre during his long career. Studio 22 is extremely fortunate to represent an artist of such vast talent and thrilled to be able to exhibit new paintings from a beloved local icon.
Paintings by Robert Blenderman will be on exhibit at Studio 22 Open Gallery, located at 320 King Street East, Kingston from April 4-May 13.
