Roy graduated from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale in 1972. He has a wide range of art expressions working in mixed media and with found objects. His paintings, sculptures and mixed media express his experiences with life. His works of art come from the soul taking the viewer to new awareness of color and space. This work is nontraditional, captivating what the viewer observes in them. Roy often incorporates primitive motifs in his work with strong brush strokes. He looks for objects to paint in or around to create his unique mixed media objects.With a background in construction he often uses construction materials and processes to develop his art. Recycling projects utilizing aluminum cans, shredded paper, broken glass and china, scrap wood and metal. Producing art from his studio since 1975, in locations where there was little or no art influences Roy has helped to bring awareness to the arts and artist in forgotten areas of his home town.Volunteering time to his neighborhood and town teaching and organizing outreach programs for children and adults Roy has been recognized as a distinguished alumni of The Art Institute Of Fort Lauderdale 1990 and 1991. He is now working and showing at The Art Station Art Gallery, 170 South Street Gastonia, North Carolina www.artstation.biz. His studio, Creations by Roy Lindsay, is located at 170 West Franklin Blvd. Gastonia, North Carolina 28052

The Art Station in downtown Gastonia NC is a collaborative of 6 friends from different past and lifestyles who came together about 4 years ago with one goal in mind and that was to create an art community and to create art that couldn't be found anywhere else.
For the most part we have done just that, true Gastonia NC has not embraced us with tons of art collectors or even art lovers but they have opened their eyes an have grown considerably.
With most of our sells being from other cities and even other states and a couple other countries we know we are producing innovative art, and Gastonia has become a good hang out for us.
Its our home base and though we venture out to the big cities from time to time to work and spread the word about our work and passion for what we are doing , we come back here to do the real creating, we feed off each other and when we are all in the studio together we do some amazing work. Work that challenges NY and LA's finest artist and we are lucky enough to do it here in the south in a laid back country mill town , so life is good .

Hey folks I'm finally back at this again , I am back in the South and working in a studio / gallery in  Gastonia NC . The Art Station here in Southern NC is a happy place for me ,being back amongst friends and fellow artist is always a good place to be .

In the coming days I will be posting new work of mine as well as work and links of friends . Gastonia is coming alive with new art projects an artist ens , my long time friends and fellow artist Ryan Karpinsky and Roy Woods have been the catalyst of the art movement in this town actually starting it four years ago with the opening of The Art Station and in the last year opening Zoe's Coffee house next door.  They have fought a strong fight in making the people in the area aware of the arts both in visual and now the preforming arts with the addition of Zoe's Coffee House.

So as I mentioned check back often to see just what we are doing , check out the locale art and art scene. there will be some very interesting things happening as we watch a small mill town in the south develop into a art market we can all be proud of and profit from.
