“Robert Harding Jr: Art from the Heart” is a retrospective look of Harding’s diverse career. A New York native, Harding has explored art all his life, experimenting with nearly every media since childhood. Driven by personal experiences, including the loss of his father in World War II at age six and serving in the military, Harding infuses his works with raw emotion and energy. He has exhibited internationally and taught at the New York School of Interior Design.
