This week in an effort to bring our artists’ work into the public eye we are sharing the work of a variety of our Berrien Artist Guild Members. Many of our artists sell online. Please take a moment to appreciate their talents and show support.

One of our Founding Members, Robert R. Williams of Williams Fine Art Studio, is offering a Special we wanted to share as part of our promotion of our artists.

***Special: One free print of the St. Joseph Carousel with purchase of other prints or commissions. (While Supplies Last, Spring 2020)***

“I can work from photographs for people or pet portraits in charcoal, pastel, or oil and ship product if paid for by customer. Commissions can be contracted and progress can be tracked by email or texts.” ~ Robert R. Williams

Robert R. Williams specializes in portraits in pastel and oil and is known for the realistic yet vibrant skin tones he achieves in his pastels. He has completed hundreds of charcoal portraits done on location at street fairs and art fairs throughout the mid-west and has completed many commissioned pastels and oils from his studio in the Box Factory for the Arts in St. Joseph, MI where he has been teaching portrait drawing and painting for the last 20 years. 

He has also taught pastel workshops at the Buchanan Art Center at 17 West Front Street in Buchanan, Michigan (in 2006) and Studio Arts Center at 807 Lincoln Way West in South Bend, Indiana (in 2006). Besides teaching at the Box Factory, Robert also has taught portrait classes at the Studio Arts Center and the Southern Shores Art Association in Michigan City in charcoal, pastel, and oil.
