“My sculptures should give delight and mystery and cultural relevance.”
Robert Clements (b. 1937 in Pittsburgh, PA) taught at the University of Georgia for 25 years from 1969 until 1994. There, he won the University’s highest awards for his teaching and research. He has written four editions of Emphasis Art, 60 articles, and directed several art grant projects. He received his B.F.A. from Carnegie Mellon University and his M.F.A.s from Pennsylvania State University. Clements is a multidisciplinary artist whose paintings capture the beauty in Southern landscapes. He is also a strong supporter of public art, beautifying Athens through commissioned sculptures such as those outside the Athens-Clarke County Library and at Argo Apartments.
