Robert Caillier’s art on display Friday, Februrary 21 at 6 pm  consists of two and three dimensional works of Visual Art.  They are primarily portraits in remembrance of some of the famous historical and contemporary Afro-American men and women, to demonstrate and illustrate their contributions to the advancement of history, freedom, social, political and economic equality of all Americans.

According Caillier, “I’ve done displays, exhibitions and Art assemblies in various schools, churches, community centers, etc.  My objective in these presentations is to enhance everyone’s understanding and appreciation of Visual Arts and as a means of building self-esteem and character in our youth.  My Artwork involves a variety of media and subject matter.  The style and technique that I use is often based on the media and message being conveyed in the work of Art.”
