Art and Music Reception April 6 at 1:30
Main Library – Peter Robilotta: photographer, printmaker, painter, designer, artist.
Peter’s Artist’s Statement: “When I was 4 years old we lived in a Quonset hut. I would paint the outside with water from a coffee can and watch the surface change color and then change back as it dried, it was almost hypnotic.
I started taking photos with a box camera in my early teens and have been shooting ever since. First you shoot the details, then the big picture and if you’re lucky you finally see that what you’re after is the concept.
I’ve tried to do a lot of other things in my life but can’t get away from the visual. Paint, light, ink, crayons; it doesn’t matter as long as you can get someone to look at it and see something beyond the immediate image, connect with something that really isn’t there.”
Live jazz will be provided by jazz guitar and bass duo, featuring Peter’s son Alex.
