Somerset County Arts Council will be hosting an exhibit from a local artist,

Rob Horsey 

Reception is on

Friday October 19th from 4-6

Rob Horsey grew up in Marion Station Maryland and graduated from Crisfield High School. Instead of art school, Rob went into science and attended University of Maryland College Park and University of Maryland School of Pharmacy. He graduated in 1986. He now lives and works in Salisbury Maryland. 
Rob is self-taught, with the exception of a few classes that he has taken here and there. He has always been an art lover. Rob was influenced by Bob Ross and the joy of painting shows on PBS. He has read numerous art books and studied the masters of oil paintings. He is presently influenced by Richard Schmid and Robert Hagans. His works are usually seascapes but from the point of view of being in the water. He enjoys showing the waters eye view of the subject. Rob’s future goal is to incorporate old master oil techniques with impressionistic loose painting to create images that resemble how the eye see light falling on objects.

The Somerset County Arts Council Grants Committee offers two different grants.  The Community Arts Development Grant and the Individual Artist Grant. Grant applications are due by Friday October 5, 2018.
