Round Hill Community Church will display the paintings of Martha Robinson during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Les Beaux Arts Gallery will be exhibiting the paintings of Martha Robinson, a Greenwich artist, from Sunday, Oct. 19 through Tuesday, Nov. 25.

This exhibition honors Breast Cancer Awareness Month since the artist derives her inspiration from her personal experience with breast cancer. Les Beaux Arts Gallery and Ms. Robinson hope that the exhibit will inspire others affected by this disease.

“It is difficult to describe the artistry of Ms. Robinso,” the gallery said. “Her work is simply intimate and personal. She primarily focuses on encaustic painting which brings a surreal and mystical feeling to her work. She also works in printmaking.”

Ms. Robinson’s artistic statement speaks to the heart, “The more I discover about universal principles, the more illuminated the nature of the world before my eyes becomes,” she said. “Through my art, I have sought to understand this unseen world of cosmic forces and possibilities by exploring the principles that govern their expression into physical form, including mathematical relationships and the cyclic nature of life.”

She added, “’Personal’ became more pronounced in my work in early 2012 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer for a second time. I processed much of my experience by creating art during and after my treatment.

Ms. Robinson has participated in several group and juried exhibitions, the most recent being Unbound-ed in Chicago. Her solo exhibition, A Personal Vision, will be displayed at Les Beaux Arts Gallery from Oct. 19 through Nov. 25.

Located in the Round Hill Community Church at 395 Round Hill Road, the gallery is open Sunday, noon to 1 p.m., Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and closed on Saturday. For more information call 203-869-1091 or visit Roundhillcommunitychurch.org.
