Robin Grass is a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He obtained his B.F.A from the University of Pennsylvania and his M.F.A. from the University of Delaware. After his education, Grass and his wife opened the Foundry Art Studio in Everett, PA in 1976. Grass currently resides and creates art at the Foundry Art Studio.


Grass creates paintings without conception usually depicting the universally known figures of clowns, jesters, or scarecrows since they exist in almost every culture. His art is created around the basis of viewer participation. Grass stated, “So when people ask, I tell them that they must bring something to the party. I merely brought the image. They can bring the story. Participate. That’s what art is all about.” Grass creates the imagery for the viewer to immerse themselves in and participate through creating their own meaning from the artwork.


The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Loretto is located on the campus of Saint Francis University. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. The Museum is open to the public free of charge. For more information, visit www.sama-art.org or call (814) 472-3920.
