Current exhibit is Robert Sirko: "Me, Myself, and Eyes" Recent Paintings & Drawings

We welcome back the artist Robert Sirko for a second time, featuring new works created during the past two years. Sirko has been working almost frenetically and passionately, exploring several different directions as he states is due to in large part his struggle with cancer and the dwindling sands of time. With a level of desperation and the uncertainty that comes with living with an incurable disease, the artist has been searching for a purposeful direction, perhaps a final episode to a life committed to art, and one that investigates areas never attempted yet always aspired to. Hence, the work presented in this current show will offer the viewer a glimpse into a variety of expressions uncommon to most solo exhibits. Sirko jokingly referred to this show as a “one person group exhibit”.
