PORTLAND, Maine - May 16, 2015 - PRLog -- Richard Boyd Art Gallery opens a solo exhibit of paintings by Rob Anderson on July 1 at 10:00 am. A multi-talented artist and performer, Rob has created art in various forms for over forty years. His paintings in oil cover a broad range of subjects from maritime to Maine's working waterfront. Rob will be available to meet the public and discuss his paintings at a reception at the gallery on Saturday, July 11 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

When asked about his art education and experience Rob said, "I was born and raised on a cattle ranch in the Rocky Mountains where I fell in love with nature and began drawing at a young age. As a child I spent hours watching my scoutmaster noted Wildlife artist Clark Bronson paint and sculpt in his studio.

I attended Brigham Young University, and studied art under the tutelage of Frank Magleby, and James Christensen. While at Brigham I earned a spot on an International Touring Dance Team for Brigham Young University. My youth taught me appreciation for nature and its beauty. Dancing and touring across Europe and communist China among other places, instilled the hunger for travel and discovering other cultures. I've been lucky enough to paint on-site in some inspiring places. The Alaska Tundra, the British Isles...the Grand Tetons and now the craggy coast of Maine. The possibilities here are endless. I do love painting."

In 1998, after 17 years of owning and managing a successful small business Rob moved to Maine. His continued love of travel inspires him to paint a variety of scenes, resulting in an extensive portfolio of paintings depicting wildlife, mountain ranges, glaciers and Maine's working waterfront. Rob's art works are exhibited nationally and held in numerous private collections.

Richard Boyd Art Gallery is located on Peaks Island at the corner of Island Avenue and Epps Street in the first building on the right, on the first floor. The exhibit is on view free of charge to the public from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm daily through July 31, 2015.
