UA Little Rock’s School of Art and Design will host Mario Robinson for a lecture as part of the artWORKS series.

Robinson, who is serving as an Artist in Residence at the Windgate Center for Art and Design for the Spring 2024 semester, is a figurative painter whose work is reminiscent of painters such as Thomas Eakins and Andrew Wyeth, historical American painters. His work is done in a variety of media, including watercolor, oil, and pastel.

Robinson’s lecture will start at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 13, in the Windgate Center for Art and Design, room 101, with a reception following the lecture.

Robinson’s work fits within the realist tradition and is timeless, with few references to modern life. His paintings often bear allusions to the work of Edward Hopper and Winslow Homer.

Robinson is the author of “Lessons in Realistic Watercolor” and has had work featured in many publications, including The Artist’s Magazine, The Pastel Journal, Watercolor Magic, American Art Collector, and Fine Art Connoisseur.
