Robyn Jacobs artwork on display in May and June

Tell your friends

The Adams County Arts Council, 125 South Washington Street, Gettysburg, will feature an exhibition of paintings in oil entitled Reunion by Robyn Jacobs during the month of May and June.  A First Friday opening reception is scheduled for Friday, May 6, 5-7:00 p.m. and is open to the public. The show will remain up through June 15.

Robyn Jacobs went to art school at Temple University and became interested in drawing her junior year of high school.  She has lived in Littlestown most of her life spending quite a bit of time painting and gardening. Robyn loves to bake and cook and compares the blending of baking ingredients to that of the buttery textures of oils.  She prefers working in oils because, “you can erase mistakes for hours or paint right over them.  Oils also lend themselves to glazing, which I love.”  She continues, “I suppose my philosophy about painting is that you can paint what you can’t say.”  She often uses old masterworks as inspiration for her compositions and is drawn to rococo style.
