A yearlong exhibition at Rockwood Nature Center
October 1, 2012 - September 30, 2013
Robert has the honor of having his work on exhibit at the Rockwood Nature Center in Chesterfield, Virginia, for the next year. Several of his wildlife paintings and drawings can be seen throughout the nature center along with exhibits of live animals from the surrounding area. Robert is very excited about this opportunity to exhibit his work so close to home and looks forward to sharing his passion of wildlife through his paintings and drawings with the visitors of the Rockwood Nature Center.
“Rockwood Nature Center is dedicated to educating children and adults about our environment,” says Robert Smet, the center’s director. “Art plays a critical role in conveying the beauty and wonder of the natural world. We believe that exposing our visitors to the work of noted artists opens the door to an appreciation of and fascination with the beauty that surrounds us on a daily basis.”
In addition to an exhibit hall giving visitors an up-close view of some of Virginia’s native wildlife including snakes, turtles and frogs, Rockwood Nature Center — the only county-operated nature center in Chesterfield — provides a variety of educational programs for the public, school groups, homeschoolers and other organizations. The log cabin-style facility is nestled by the forest in Rockwood Park.
