WORK and PLAY: Bethany Robinson

Bethany Robinson

In celebration of Women’s History Month, The Center for Visual Arts Gallery at Brookdale Community College is pleased to present WORK and PLAY, an exhibition of video installations, digital collages and sculpture by artist Bethany Robinson.

Bethany Robinson’s work spans multiple mediums, including graphic design, photography, sculpture, drawing, painting, video, VR, and performance. Born in 1995, the last year defining the millennial generation, she is accustomed to the ever growing progression of technology – this is her driving force as an artist. Observing how people use technology, why they use technology, or how they choose reject technology are questions she seeks to explore in her work. The pieces included in WORK and PLAY were selected from current projects stemming from her fascination with online gaming communities; specifically, her personal experience with the discourse that shapes the nature of online gaming and the impact this discourse has on women.

Robinson received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with honors in 2019 from the School of Visual Arts. She was the 2019 recipient of SVA’s Amelia Geocos Memorial Award, was selected for one of four Department Chair Choice Awards, and has been invited to speak at SVA’s Fall New Student Orientation. Publications include inclusion in SVA’s online catalog, 20/20, Visual Opinions Magazine, and a feature in SVA Style Magazine. Recent exhibitions include “Sticks and Stones May Break my Bones But Words Will Never Hurt Me” curated by Tyler Rowland, SVA Chelsea Gallery, NYC.

Robinson currently resides in Monmouth County, New Jersey where she works as an art restoration technician and scenic artist while continuing with her studio practice. Robinson’s work can be viewed at bethanyrobinson.art
