Eco-materialist artist Robert Anderson will speak at Art League of Leland’s October meeting.
Art League of Leland (ALL) invites artists and art enthusiasts to its Thursday, October 7, 2021, meeting featuring abstract artist Robert Anderson as guest speaker.
Anderson reuses plastic waste by reforming it into abstract art. He allows the texture, color and form of plastic that he finds in dumpsters, on the beach and by the road to determine the direction of each artwork. A graduate of Ohio State University with a B.S. in architecture, Anderson examines the human condition and its dependence on plastic.
“By using reclaimed plastic as my art medium, I hope to encourage others to explore this overabundant material,” he says.
Anderson’s artwork has won numerous awards since he began his journey as an abstract eco-materialist.
Painter Adrienne Watts will be in ALL’s Member Spotlight to discuss how she promotes her award-winning artwork using social media. Drawn to abstract expressionism as a child, Watts began painting professionally in 2018 after retiring from a career in accounting and real estate.
ALL’s mission is to encourage, guide, support, inform and provide learning opportunities for area artists and advocates of the arts. ALL welcomes artists and art lovers not only from Leland but also from neighboring communities.
