Robin Frey: Weekend With the Masters Instructor
Artist Robin Frey grew up in Sarasota, Florida, taking art classes as a child at the Ringling School of Art. She received her B.F.A. from Eastern Mennonite University, in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Upon graduating, she moved to New York City and continued her academic training at The Art Students League of New York, where she studied with Gary Faigin, Nelson Shanks, and Ron Sherr. Frey furthered her oil painting skills with Nelson Shanks at Studio Incamminati, and helped establish the atelier. She also studied with Michael Grimaldi, Dan Thompson, and Darren Kingsley.
In 2008, she received an Honor Award in the Portrait Society of America's 2008 Portrait Competition. The artist has participated in numerous group exhibitions throughout the country including those at The Union League of Philadelphia; Mohawk Valley Community College, in Utica, New York; and for the American Red Cross of Central New Jersey.
Her work has been exhibited at the Freeman's Auction House, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; the Gratz Gallery, in Doylestown, Pennsylvania; the Peter McPhee Fine Arts, in Stone Harbor, New Jersey; the Philadelphia Sketch Club Juried Show; the Main Line Art Center, in Haverford, Pennsylvania; Perkins Center for the Arts, in Moorestown, New Jersey; the Artists' House Gallery, in Philadelphia; and the State Art Museum Juried Show, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

In 2009-2010 she completed two portraits for "Face To Face," a community art project designed to help young people with craniofacial conditions see themselves in a different and more positive light. The portraits that Frey painted are on permanent display at the Ruth and Tristram Colket Jr. Translational Research Building, at the Childrens' Hospital of Philadelphia.
