"The Artwork of Robert Brown: A Retrospective Exhibition of a Life's Work," is presented at the Brand Library Galleries after the fashion of a museum shop.
The purpose of the exhibition is to raise funds to support free arts and cultural events programs at the Brand and to share Brown's art with the community.
A prolific and master printmaker, Brown's limited-edition serigraphs are pinned to gallery walls and stacked on tables staged throughout the main room. One end of the gallery is lit up with Brown's glassworks — sculptures, panes, etched panels and plates capture and refract light from gallery windows. The casual presentation was chosen in order to minimize the cost of the exhibition and reinforce the goal of "fundraising."
Like Vincent Van Gogh, Brown had a desire to share his passion for art with people of all economic stations and to serve as inspiration for art enthusiasts, both collectors and creators. All of Brown's works are for sale, priced well below market rate, to disseminate the work throughout the community, and to support the place in which he exhibited often and loved dearly.
