Robert Masla: Then and There, Here and Now

Then & There, Here & Now

August 2023

Artist’s reception, Friday August 11, 6-8pm, in conjunction with Northampton’s Arts Night Out


This exhibition is a combination of paintings, some done plein air, some in the studio, inspired by Masla’s travels during last few years. There are works from places such as Morocco, Vietnam, Croatia, Mexico, and a number from Massachusetts where Masla resides. His art is a constant practice to find a sense of connectedness to Nature, no matter where he is.
