Rockland Center for the Arts presents “A Distant Embrace”, exhibited works by Robert Hite.
Hudson Valley artist Robert Hite grew up in Virginia but has traveled the world. Hite is interested in exploring issues of local knowledge, memory, transience, environment, disenfranchisement and domicile as living art through sculpture, painting and photography. Much of his photographic work juxtaposes the artificial and the natural and play with architectural scale. Hite’s cottages and cabins, many on stilts, have a lopsided, somewhat ramshackle air to them, as if nature is slowly reclaiming the buildings. Hite was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship in 2014.
The exhibit is on view October 8 through November 19, 2017. Free to the public. For more information contact: Rockland Center for the Arts, 845-358-0877, www.rocklandartcenter.org . Rockland Center for the Arts is located at 27 S Greenbush Rd., West Nyack, NY 10994.
