Rex Robinson

American Artist


Sticking to a professional goal of over 40 years, Rex Robinson has completed hundreds of original paintings and sculptures in each ongoing portfolios of Kentucky, each state in the Southeast, and now Western subjects. Robinson states “the urgency continues because we lose important subjects every day in the U.S.A. Capturing the uniqueness of historic sites, landscapes, gardens and representative genres of America’s vast variety is a stimulating challenge to appreciate and recreate through art, making an heirloom that tells it’s story.”

Robinson has exhibited his works in over 60 solo, more group exhibits, and competitions across the country and has many works included in corporate, private, and museum collections. An academically trained painter/sculptor in all media, Robinson produces sketches, paintings, low/high relief paintings, murals, sculpture, and combinations to create a themed environment.

Rex earned a B.A. in Art Education at Kentucky Wesleyan College and a graduate degree at Western Kentucky University. He conducted a dozen years of residency for the KY Arts Council, taught in public schools for 15 years and continues teaching classes, workshops and programs at his newly opened Rex Robinson’s Visual Art Center, located at 425 5th Street. Claiming the cornerstone of the Arts District of downtown Owensboro, Kentucky, Robinson created a sculpture garden next to the center which also features the 4 Seasons Artist CO-OP, a regional showcase of The Owensboro Art Guild.
