The Estate of Rob Reeps (shown by Karen Clepper)
Rob graduated from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. Shortly after, he created a painting series inspired by the Pennsylvania Turnpike rest areas. “Bowman 4” completed in 1973, is one of those paintings.
Rob and his wife Karen relocated to the Boston area in 1984. Rob was a long time member of the Bromfield Gallery on South Street in Boston. In 1995, Rob became one of the founding members of the Artist Building at 300 Summer Co-op in Fort Point. There he painted many bodies of work including his “Oceans & Cosmos” series which were featured in a one person show in 1998, at the Beth Urdang Gallery on Newbury Street. He lived and worked in Boston until his death in 2013.
