What some might see as junk may become Tom Robinson’s next colorful canvas. The long-time Fallon resident and artisan can evoke creative expression using an item that many would discard, or with an instrument not normally used.

“Tom Robinson: New Work” is featured in the Virgil Getto Hall Art Gallery, Monday, Aug. 25 through Saturday, Oct. 4, at Western Nevada College Fallon Campus.

The collection includes Robinson’s latest abstract paintings along with several sculptures.

“Tom uses discarded house-paint can" cans included, surplus canvas and unconventional tools to create art with a visceral impact,” said WNC Art Professor Gil Martin.
Martin said that Robinson’s work “is tough, unpretentious, uncompromising and slyly witty, like the artist himself.”

The public is invited to view the exhibit, which kicks off the college’s 2014-15 academic year.
