Robert Henry is the CCMoA ARTIST MUSE AWARD recipient and has a solo exhibition at the CCMoA titled “Ship of State” that runs from August 22 – October 20, 2019.
He began as an artist in New York City studying with the famed teacher Hans Hofmann and as a young man was deeply involved in the Abstract Expressionism movement. His figurative expressionist paintings came from his imagination using drawing skills and an advanced level of technical and compositional skills. Henry taught at Brooklyn College for thirty years, where he is now a Professor Emeritus. He has taught for years in Provincetown, MA as well as many other art schools.
Henry has lectured extensively, curated and written exhibition catalog essays, served on the jury for the Fulbright Awards, and been President of the Board of Trustees of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAMM). His work is in many private collections, as well as in 20 museum and corporate collections.
