Artist's Lecture at the Marion Art Center - Robert Seyffert
Saturday, September 28, 11am | 80 Pleasant St. Marion

The Marion Art Center is pleased to present an artist's lecture by Robert Seyffert, currently exhibiting in the MAC lower gallery. Seyffert will present on Saturday, September 28 at 11am at the Marion Art Center. This is the final day of the exhibition, featuring paintings by Nancy Dyer Mitton & Robert Seyffert.

Robert Seyffert lives and paints en plein air in NYC. This exhibition of paintings focuses on his love of vintage American cars parked on obscure city streets. He paints in a classic Contemporary American Realist style not unlike Edward Hopper. Seyffert received his BFA from the Maryland Institute, College of Art and his MFA from Parsons School of Design. His prizes have included the Yale at Norfolk Award, the Helena Rubenstein Grant, 1st Prize National Arts Club in 1999, Greenshields Fellowship, and in 2019 the Poe Award for Excellence in the Arts from the Bronx Historical Society. American Artist magazine said "Whether it's a big tree or a 1965 Pontiac, there's something about the light hitting the subject that excites me, and that's what I paint. I'm trying to get the sensation created by the thing I'm looking at, and not just copying it" (Howell, 2003).
