The Penn State Berks Freyberger Gallery will present Robert Ian Pepper: 25 Years of Portraits in Berks, from March 18 to April 15, 2010. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, March 18, at 6:00 p.m. in the Freyberger Gallery. This event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be served.

Robert Ian Pepper's scope of work is linked less by imagery, style, or media, and more by character, passion, and drive. From his earliest street chalk drawings, completed in the '80s in his native Manchester, England, through his progression of still life, constructions, geometric art, and portraits, energy is the common denominator that links the work.

In the exhibition "25 Years of Portraits in Berks," Pepper shares a collection of commissioned portraits, as well as paintings of friends. He has painted portraits for more than thirty, from the street drawings, to assertive and energetic paintings of families, children, and associates.

The Freyberger Gallery is open Monday through Wednesday, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.; and Sunday from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
