Robert tells The Rickie Report, “I am attracted to organic form and energy whether it is found in nature, figure or movement. There is an energy in dance I am attracted to, something that takes over the dancer through their movements. This energy can also be found in a static form of living things. Sometimes it is used to convey a feeling or mood, other times to make a statement.”

 

 

The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization In its 35th year. It is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their art work in local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community through their art.
