Artist Robert Noreika will demonstrate the process he goes through while creating a painting during a free art demonstration Sunday, March 3 at Rowayton Arts Center.

Noreika’s art focuses on composition and color — he paints a wide variety of subjects highlighted by expressive coastal scenes, intimate woodland pictorials and street scenes. He emphasizes “you’re making a painting, not documenting a view.”

This demonstration takes place from 2 to 4 p.m., and is free and open to the public.

Noreika is a graduate of Paier School of Art and has been a professional artist for forty years. A prominent national award-winning artist and illustrator, his paintings hang in both corporate and private collections throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan.

In November 2009, the New Britain Museum of American Art acquired for their permanent collection a piece from his “Turtle-esque” series, “Catfish with Turtle”.  His work is also featured in “100 Artists of New England” by Schiffer Publishing.

He is represented in numerous galleries and teaches and lectures throughout New England. He has illustrated several children’s books and magazine editorials.

Robert will also be teaching a two-day workshop at RAC over the weekend of March 23 and 25, titled “Fearless Fluid Watercolors or Acrylics.” It’s open to artists of all painting abilities. Register online for the demo and/or the workshop at

RAC celebrates the study, creation and appreciation of the arts through classes, exhibitions and events open to all in the community. For almost 60 years, this nonprofit organization has been a cultural gem in the Norwalk community.

The gallery and art school overlook the scenic Five Mile River in Rowayton, CT at 145 Rowayton Avenue with space for regional artists to exhibit their art and a classroom for workshops and classes at all levels offered to children and adults. Visit and follow @rowaytonarts.
