Bob Strauss, critic, died Jan. 13

Critic R. B. (Bob) Strauss died Jan. 13. Here’s a lovely appreciation and a video clip at DoNArTNeWs.

Bob explored many types of art and many venues in Philadelphia and he wrote for many local publications including Art Matters. He was 54 at his death from a heart attack according to this posting at PA8News but he’d been ill for several years. This story says there will be a memorial for him at High Tower Gallery in Philadelphia but I believe they mean Highwire Gallery.

It was always a pleasure to run into him in the galleries. He was cheerful and observant and his energy and passion for art were contagious. He will be missed.
