Robin Edmundson

The opening reception featuring Robin Edmundson is this Saturday from 5-8! Be sure to stop in for refreshments, some lovely art, a coupon to the Main Street Supper Club, and a chance to win a free childrens class.Robin Edmundson paints everyday rural things in new ways with bold & unusual colors, using simplified shapes & lines to emphasize the patterns and rhythms of rural life.Robin grew up in northern Indiana in an old farmhouse on a property full of old farm buildings. Her early goal was to learn as many languages as she could. In college, she quickly found Linguistics and earned a Ph.D. in that field. She taught in various capacities at Indiana University for twenty-seven years. Always looking for creative outlets to balance her academic life, she learned to dye and weave and became an award winning fiber artist.
