Robert Andrew Parker and Geoffrey parker, his son, are known for their work in many mediums—watercolor, oil, acrylics, printmaking, and sculpture.
Parker senior is nearing 90 and has been a well-regarded artist and illustrator for more than half a century.
Geoff draws inspiration for his moonlit vessels from a decade in the Merchant Marines. Extensive travel and a shared love of music and film has added further fuel to their prodigious oeuvres.
Catch a metaphysical ride with each of them at the Ober Gallery in Kent, in a show that runs through May 1, 2016 aboard one of Geoff’s ships or as a passenger in one of Robert’s vintage airplanes.
