The Lawrenceville School Hutchins Galleries are pleased to present “A Portrait of the Artist as a Living System,” works by Stuart Robertson ’11.

The show will be on display in the Galleries May 6-June 3, Mondays-Fridays 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.mAn opening reception, open to all members of the School community, will be held on May 14 in the Galleries from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.

Robertson is Lawrenceville’s first Artist-in-Residence, a position that requires him to produce his own work, maintain outside art world connections, teach, and develop co-curricular programming for Lawrentians.  His work will be featured in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. as part of “The Outwin 2022: American Portraiture Today” exhibition from April 30, 2022-February 26, 2023 before traveling to other U.S. cities. 

As Lawrenceville’s Artist-in-Residence, Robertson is expanding upon the work he developed during his yearlong Graduate Fellowship residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts after earning his  MFA in art practice from Stanford University, where he taught  and mentored students at all levels.  An honorary member of the Class of 2018, Robertson entered education as a Visual Arts teaching fellow at Lawrenceville while earning his master’s degree in education through the University of Pennsylvania Independent School Teaching Residency program. Robertson received a B.A. in studio art from Davidson College.
