Robert J. O’Connor was renowned for his precise watercolor paintings that depict a wide range of subject matter from European cities to pastoral landscapes to American waterways.

Before gaining international recognition, O’Connor began with a dream of drawing. At the age of 50, his dream became reality. He taught himself how to paint by reading books and observing other artists. Despite the lack of a formal art education, O’Connor excelled at watercolors, the most difficult painting medium.

The Carroll Community College Foundation will host a cocktail reception to auction off selections from the artist’s personal collection on September 9. Proceeds will fund the Robert and Diane O’Connor Endowed Scholarship for the Visual and Performing Arts at Carroll.
