Studio B Art Gallery’s New Featured Artist
September 3, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
First Friday in Easton is September 3 and Studio B Art Gallery is hosting a special reception celebrating the gallery’s new featured artist, Daniel Robbins. Come see new art and enjoy great conversation from 5 to 7:30 p.m.
Daniel joins Studio B Art Gallery after his wildly successful Plein Air Easton 2021 campaign where he won three awards. Those accolades include Best Use of Light Award, Artists’ Choice Award, and the First Place Award in the festival’s Quick Draw event.
“Daniel was amazing during Plein Air Easton 2021 and to be able to showcase his talent and skill at Studio B is an honor,” Studio B Art Gallery Owner Betty Huang said.
Daniel grew up in Virginia Beach, Virginia and always wanted to create art. During grades four through eight, he was enrolled in the Old Donation Center for the Gifted and Talented, and in high school he continued his study of art at the Governor’s School for the Arts. He moved to Richmond to study in the Communication Arts department at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), which is ranked as one of the top art schools in the country. While at VCU he received multiple awards for his artistic and academic achievement, including Most Outstanding Junior and Senior in Communication Arts, Dean’s List, and a scholarship from the New York Society of Illustrators’ Student Competition.
After he received his B.F.A. in 2006, Daniel started to teach drawing and painting as an adjunct faculty member in the Communication Arts department at VCU. He has also exhibited his paintings in galleries in New York, Virginia, North Carolina, Charleston, Boston, Maryland, and Park City, Utah. Daniel has received numerous honors and awards, including Award of Excellence from the Portrait Society of America’s International Portrait Competition; Best in Show at the Virginia Artists Juried Exhibition, in Hampton; Virginia’s Finest Artist at the “Boardwalk Art Festival,” in Virginia Beach; Winsor and Newton Material Award at the Salmagundi Club in New York City; Artist’s Choice Award at Plein Air Easton; and he wrote “The Road Not Taken” for the Artists on Art publication. He was also named as one of “21 Under 31” artists to collect by Southwest Art magazine.
