Robert Lyn Nelson returned to his hometown of Ontario, California for an exhibit at the Chaffey Community Museum of Art (CCMA).
Ontario Mayor, Paul Leon, long-time friend and collector of RLN, came up with the idea for the exhibition and played a key role in assembling a team from the Ontario art community. “The Many Worlds of Robert Lyn Nelson” exhibit and a VIP reception was organized and supported in joint effort by CCMA, the City of Ontario Community Life & Culture Agency, Greater Ontario Convention & Visitors Bureau, Ontario Museum of History & Art, Jeffrey Burum Enterprises, and Manny Acosta of Pepe’s Towing Service.
Nancy Diedemar, Chairman of the Board of Directors, and Mayor Paul Leon, spoke at the red carpet reception held for the artist and guests. View the event video.
During the event, Robert was able to visit with family, meet new friends and collectors and reconnect with old friends he hadn’t seen in years.
The exhibit includes a diverse range of works by the artist from impressionism to surrealism and covering various subject matter. Many visited the museum to view RLN’s work over the two-month long exhibit ending March 19, 2022.
