Artists' Cooperative Gallery of Westerly "A Special Artist" In Memory of Gert Rohdin
In February, the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery proudly presents a very special visiting artist show in memory of long-time and greatly missed Gallery member Gert Rohdin, who passed away last year at the age of 99.
Come view the unique work of the late artist at the show’s opening Reception, Friday, February 7th from 5-8 PM.
A self-taught artist born in Sweden, who later emigrated to the United States, Mr. Rohdin was passionate about art from the age of 6, but didn’t start painting as an artist until he was 71. For nearly 3 decades he painted prolifically, creating thousands of paintings. Undaunted by physical challenges, he created over 100 works the winter he was 93.
