Art Viewing Adventures: Why Rob Tat Loves Photography (Virtual)
Mon October 12, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Rodney Paul, an experienced museum guide, will be joined by Robert Tat for a tour of his personal eclectic photography collection. While viewing these images, he will discuss the history of photography and help us understand how it came to be considered a fine art.
Rob has been collecting photographs for over 40 years. His particular areas of interest include fine art photographs by the masters as well as lesser-known artists, San Francisco historical views, and vernacular images by unknown photographers. His interest in collecting stems from doing his own photography, which he still enjoys.
In 1996, he established the Robert Tat Gallery in San Francisco, which deals exclusively in photographic art. Over a 10-year period, the Gallery mounted 43 exhibitions before Rob became a private dealer. He is also a local museum guide and regularly conducts tours of photography as well as other art exhibitions.
Rodney has been leading Zoom-based art tours long before shelter-in-place, as a way to share art from a distance. In his tours, he provides information to help viewers mine the artworks for meaning based on their own experiences and perceptions.
