Walter Robinson: 
Paintings and Other Indulgences

On view October 17 through December 22, 2014

University Galleries of Illinois State University is pleased to announce the opening of Walter Robinson: Paintings and Other Indulgences, the inaugural exhibition at its new storefront space at Uptown Station in Normal, Illinois. The exhibition is the first museum survey of the prolific New York-based artist's paintings from 1979 to 2014. The eighty paintings on view provide a broad selection of the artist's work, including the pulp-novel romance paintings which garnered Robinson critical recognition in the early 1980s, still lifes featuring over-­the-counter pharmaceuticals, recent representations of Lands' End clothing models and online erotic selfies, and many others.
