Robert Wands: A Retrospective

December 12, 2020 – May 1, 2021 (King Gallery)
December 12, 2020 – May 22, 2021 (Regional Gallery)


Mr. Wands currently serves as a professor emeritus with Colorado State University in Pueblo, where he started as an art professor in the early-1960s, teaching drawing and painting for 33 years. Additionally, he has worked as director of Wands Art Studio and Gallery since 1978.

Robert was raised in the home of his artist father, the “Dean of Colorado landscape artists”, Alfred Wands, who taught him to paint “En Plein Air” from the age of 12. 

Robert went on to receive his B.F.A. and M.A. in painting from the University of Denver with additional graduate work at Case Western Reserve University and The Cleveland Art Institute.  His master thesis dealt with “Atmospheric Conditions in Paint” and he became known as a cloud painter.  He also spent five years as a seasonal ranger in Rocky Mountain National Park, which added greatly to his interest in landscape painting. Robert retired as Professor Emeritus of Art from Colorado State University at Pueblo, where he taught drawing and Painting for 33 years.  He now maintains two studios, one in Pueblo, CO from October to May, and another in Estes Park, CO from June to September.
