Speakeasy Art Gallery presents Robert Brickner-McDonald: Reclaim Reconstruct Reimagine October 4-November 23. Please join us for the opening reception on Friday, October 4th from 6-9pm.
Robert (Bob) Brickner-McDonald spent his childhood in Mountainside, New Jersey. From early on he had an innate desire to make things – a log clubhouse, forts, HO scale model buildings of balsa wood and cardboard, mountains of papier-mâché. He was in his third year of a civil engineer major when he took his first art class just for fun and realized a different path. He left the WVU engineering program and started a five-year major in architecture at the University of Houston the next year.
Bob is an architect by day and artist by night: woodworking, drawings, and later small sculptures from found objects - some of which are now on display at Speakeasy Gallery.
