Robert L. Lewis, Florida Highwaymen Artist, Demonstration
Saturday, November 17 from 10:01AM to 4:01PM
Pinellas Park Art Society welcomes Florida Highwaymen artist, Robert L. Lewis. â€œFlorida Highwaymenâ€ are African American artists who began painting Florida landscapes in the 1950s. They developed their own techniques, shunning traditional methods and painting quick, colorful images of Floridaâ€™s tropical beauty. They sold their creations from the trunks of their cars along Floridaâ€™s east coast, hence the name â€œHighwaymen.â€ Mr. Lewis will demonstrate & discuss his painting techniques, which preserve Florida's history through art. This event is a benefit for the Art Society's Scholarship Program.
