Robert W. Kleinschmidt

Robert W. Kleinschmidt is a thoughtful and sensitive printmaker with a sense of humor to match, this artist and teacher was a long time faculty member at the University of Utah.

Kleinschmidt studied at the University of Wisconsin where he earned his M.A. in 1996, and his  M.F.A. in1969. Kleinschmidt is a superb teacher and, as an artist, tends to pursue a theme through nuance after nuance in series.

Like Kleinschmidt's commitment to his students of time and concern, his art makes for a rewarding change of pace within a contemporary context of art and college art teaching wherein the initial impact of hollow works and “God's gifts“ to the studio major have all too often replaced depth of thought and serious teaching involvement. Kleinschmidt has participated in numerous exhibitions.
