Opening at Susan Calloway Fine Arts this Saturday, April 2, 2011 and continuing through April 16 is "Robert Rea: A Lyrical Palette," an exhibition of abstract paintings.

Born and raised in small-town Alabama, Rea processes his childhood memories of red clay fields, pine-filled forests, and rolling foothills at the edge of the Appalachian Mountains in his paintings. Through the use of honest brushwork and a muted and subtle palette, the artist conveys a sense of vibrant light-filled landscapes.

Robert Rea's paintings are currently featured in the April/May issue of Veranda magazine.
