DALE O. ROBERTS

Dale O. Roberts was born in Waterville, New York in 1959. Roberts is a painter, working primarily in the encaustic medium for over 30 years with a significant portion of work carried out in gouache, graphite and a variety of other techniques. His work explores the painterly possibilities of representation with regard to urban landscape, still life and rural landscape. Roberts graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and drawing from Tyler School of Art in 1982. He has had numerous solo shows at the Rosenfeld Gallery in Philadelphia PA and is also represented by the following galleries: Gross McCleaf Gallery in Philadelphia, Blue Heron in Wellfleet MA, Marshall Lakae Gallery in Scottsdale AZ, Galleria Art Nou-Mil-Lenni in Barcelona Spain, and the 1261 Gallery in Denver CO. He has paintings in many public and private collections including Cozens Connor law firm, Liberty One in Philadelphia, The PECO Corporation, Rutgers University Museum, Community College of Philadelphia Museum, The Wharton School of business, and Vanguard investment Group. Roberts currently lives and works in Norristown PA. I have taught many workshops throughout the united states including the International Encaustic Conference in Provincetown MA, The Willingboro Art Alliance, The Wallingford Art Center, and Castle Hill Center for the arts. During the summer of 2016 I spent 5 weeks as an artist- in- residence studying in Tetouan, Morocco and giving an intensive 2 evening encaustic workshop to 15 Moroccan artists.

PERSONAL:               Born 1959 – Waterville, New York. The work I am currently engaged in is

                                      a continued refinement of a visual dialogue with life. Changing

                                      relationships of light, air, and color, specific to season and time of day

                                      are the foundational structures underpinning my work. A yearning to see

                                      and interpret more clearly and truthfully defining qualities intrinsic to

                                      each subject has become my obsession. The interactive process of

                                      painting itself, with its history, both personal and universal is the

                                      backdrop and the lens that places each new effort in context.

 

EDUCATION:            BFA Painting and Drawing. Tyler School of Art, Temple University, 1982.

                                      AAS Rochester Institute of Technology, 1979.
