The colorful paintings of artist Darrell Roberts are now on exhibit through March 26 at the Farnham Galleries on the Simpson College campus.

Roberts, who grew up in rural Iowa, has a BA in art history from the University of Northern Iowa and a BFA and MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

He has spent much of his career finding inspiration in the landscape and structures of Chicago, where he now lives. “The elements of nature give many structures in Chicago a nice patina,” he said. “Flakes of paint chip off buildings, leaving behind a history of paint strata on the structure. Rust becomes more dominant on boxcars as they haul commodities from Chicago to the west and back. The city gardens are full of intense colors and textures in the summer. My paintings have much to do with these observations and a keen sense of sight.”

A reception for Roberts will be held from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Farnham Galleries, located in Mary Berry Hall on the Simpson campus in Indianola. Gallery hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays. For more information, call 515-961-1486 or go to http://simpson.edu/farnham-galleries
