Fellow Robert Strini Launches New Website


VCCA sculptor Robert Strini is pleased to unveil his new website, which represents four decades of art making. A visit to the site promises to please, with various historic and "in the studio" video clips and virtual tours of installations. Please be in touch with Robert to learn more about his work and to stay connected with future projects and exhibitions. Robert's contact information is: P.O. Box 120, North Garden, Virginia 22959; strinir@aol.com. Visit his website at: www.robertstrini.com.


Robert has exhibited his work across the country in dozens of solo and group shows and his work is represented in a number of national collections. He studied ceramics with the artists Peter Voulkos and James Melchert while at the University of California, Berkley, where he received his MFA in sculpture. In 1971 he was awarded the Rome Prize Fellowship in Sculpture, and has received two National Endowment for the Arts grants. His teaching career includes stints at the Rhode Island School of Design, University of California, Santa Cruz, and the Corcoran Museum School in Washington, D.C.

"The process of problem solving and discovery is central to the creation of my art," Robert says. "I will experiment with many materials before I choose the ones that are right for a specific concept. No idea is solved immediately; it first must go through a process where all its parts are explored and either used or discarded in the final creative expression."
