Artist’s Statement


“I founded the Rockingham Arts and Museum Project (RAMP) over 20 years ago to include artists and the arts in the revitalization of Bellows Falls. Initially, I imagined it as a jump-start project that might need to exist for two or three years. Now it’s approaching its 25th anniversary. All successful community projects are an organic process. By integrating artists and the arts into Bellows Falls, RAMP’s goal is to include and not exclude, and to celebrate the diversity of our community socially and economically.


The scale of Vermont provides a manageable, rich, Petri dish, one that allows us to interact and thrive in our communities. In Vermont, you can roll up your sleeves, get involved, and make a difference. We can choose to be performers or the audience.


As the plastic lobster bib I brought back from Maine and that now hangs on my office door states, Let’s get crackin’.”

Biography


Robert McBride works in both mixed media and sculpture.  His work truly is about color: specifically, a conversation between the artist and his palette.  


For the viewer, this is expressed with a strong sense of narrative.  The story of the visual, audile, and emotional stimulation the artist translates from his life into the tangible form before us, becomes a topographical map; a landscape of McBride's vocabulary of color.
