Reception for Bob Herbert

November 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Reception for Bob Herbert

The Cazenovia Public Library will celebrate artist and longtime Cazenovia
resident Bob Herbert with an exhibition of his work, titled Artist Bob Herbert. Visit
the Gallery to experience Herbert’s commercial and personal artistry, including
local signs, TV guides, sketchbooks, portraits, and well-known local scenes in oil,
pastel, and watercolor.
Hired as a graphic artist at WHEN-TV (now WTVH) in 1953, Herbert
witnessed firsthand the early years of television broadcasting. He produced
artwork for local programs such as “The Magic Toy Shop” and enhanced the TV
guide schedules with complimentary sketches. Herbert’s later body of work is
seemingly synonymous with Cazenovia. Following a career in television, Herbert
became the local go-to sign painter, improving the curb appeal of many
Cazenovia institutions, including St. Peter’ Church, First Presbyterian, the
Library, Flowers on Main Street, and Ridge Associates, where he also produced
presentation charts and graphics.
Artist Bob Herbert is on display through November 30. A “Celebration
Reception” will be held Thursday, November 8 at 6:00 pm. For more information,
