UM Art Professor Robert Malone Opens Art Exhibit in New Orleans

University of Mississippi art professor Robert Malone opened his art exhibited in New Orleans this week.

Malone’s work has been exhibited in over seven galleries. His work can also be found in private and corporate collections around the country.

The exhibit features Malone’s signature landscapes painted in oil in various sizes ranging from five-foot-tall to only fourteen-inch-tall canvases.

“I go out into the field to paint,” Malone said. “I go on site and look at what I’m painting.”

Malone named one of his paintings “en plein air,” a French term that directly translates to “in the open air.”

Audience reactions are always anticipated at any exhibition, and every artist hopes that the thoughts and feelings come through the work.

“Hopefully to some extent a spiritual nature of the landscape will be found,” Malone said.

Malone has been an art instructor at the University of Mississippi for over fourteen years, teaching students by example as well as in the classroom.

“[Malone] definitely has his own style for sure, and the color choices he uses in his art are very beautiful,” Jerika Broussard, a fifth-year senior graphic design and art major said. “I love his brush technique. It’s different from any other artist I’ve seen, and that’s what makes it his signature.”

This is Malone’s fourth solo exhibition in the Carol Robinson Gallery.

Malone’s exhibit opened on Nov. 6 at 6 p.m. and runs through Nov. 30 at the Carol Robinson Gallery.
