“That’s where I want to be!” is often the first response of a viewer of a Robert Selkowitz painting. The paintings have the power to bring the experience of being there in a place where tension melts and life is enjoyed.

Through his Sunlight Studio, located in Ashokan, New York, near the historic Woodstock art colony, Robert has coordinated the building of art collections for healthcare facilities, bringing additional artists into a group and publishing their work, along with his own, in photoprint editions. He has developed connections with Arts in Healthcare facilitators throughout the world. Front Porch, a non-profit organization which operates retirement, active adult living, skilled nursing and affordable housing communities, is publishing a 2007 calendar featuring porch paintings by Robert Selkowitz. Front Porch represents Robert’s combined interests in arts and healthcare and communities of aspiration. “I have been creating painting using porches and verandas as settings for the compositions for about 25 years. They had a universal appeal and people bought them for their homes and offices. I chose the compositions because there was an aspect that arrested my attention, there was a beauty I felt that could be translated to a painting and felt by the viewer.”

Besides his original work in oil and pastels, Robert’s images are available in serigraphs, giclees, laserprints, posters, note cards and postcards.
