Viera’s narrative paintings on display at Robeson Center

“It’s a Dog’s Life” is by Charles David Viera.

The public is invited to the opening reception from 3 to 5 p.m. Jan. 13, of “Charles David Viera, Narrative Paintings,” on display at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts in Princeton, N.J.

Viera is a longtime instructor for the Arts Council of Princeton. His narrative art works have rarely been displayed as a group and are the focus of this exhibition, which coincides with a special class, “Narrative Painting: Making a Statement,” to be offered at the ACP during the winter semester.

The exhibition opened at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, 102 Witherspoon St., Princeton, on Jan. 3 and runs through Feb. 1.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9:30 a.n. to 12:30 p.m. Saturdays.

“Narrative Painting: Making a Statement” will be offered from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Mondays Jan. 22 to March 5.

“So many developing artists have skills in painting the figure and landscape painting but ask, ‘now what?’ I want the students to take those skills further and delve into narration, creating moments, situations and events that reflect on the human condition,” Viera said.

“I think the public will find the exhibition thought-provoking and the students will find it relative and helpful to their work.”
