Art Of The Robot
June 22, 2013 - September 22, 2013
Showcased are 45 robots created by 16 artists expressing the issues and contradictions of living in modern society.

Each of the artists invited to participate in this exhibit has a unique way of portraying their robot creations-through paintings, prints, found object sculptures, photographs and other materials. The Art of the Robot exhibit features works by: Don L. Jones, Pittsburgh; Amy Flynn, Raleigh, NC; Nemo Gould, Oakland, Calif; Eric Joyner, San Francisco; Tim Warchocki, Winter Garden, Fla; CyberCraft Robots, St. Petersburg, Fla; Richard Muller, Altadena, Calif; Brian Despain, Seattle, Wash.; Mark Brown, Easthampton, MA; Donna Sophronia-Sims, Birmingham, AL; Lisa Grothman Ryan, Wilmette, Ill; Will Wagenaar, Port Richey, Fla; Heather Heilman Loercher and Howie Hartman, Wrightsville, PA.
