Biography from Meibohm Fine Arts, Inc.:
Robert Lyall Flock (American, 1928-) noted Western New York Abstract-Expressionist artist, painter, illustrator and teacher, was born August 12, 1928 in Buffalo, NY, to parents Baldur A. Flock (1899-1970) and Ruth M. (née Harwood) Flock (1899-1998). Robert is primarily known for his oil and mixed media paintings, mixed media and paper collage work, as well as ink, charcoal & graphite drawings.

Robert’s primary education was at Kenmore High School where he graduated in 1946. He was later drafted and served as a medic in the Korean War from December 12, 1950 until he was discharged on September 12, 1952. Seven days after he got back from Korea, he enrolled and began art studies at the Albright Art School where he graduated in 1955. He also studied at the University of Buffalo, where he received his B.F.A. in 1958. In addition, Robert received fellowships at the Yale-Norfolk Summer School of Music and Art in 1956, and with the State University of New York Faculty Research Foundation in 1970, 1974, and 1976.

He taught art in the Kenmore Public School System at Herbert Hoover Junior High School from 1960-68. Starting in 1969, he was an Assistant Professor of Art at Niagara County Community College in Sanborn, NY, and was later promoted to Associate Professor of Art in 1981, where he retired in 1988. He had also briefly taught at Buffalo State College. Robert participated in artists’ cooperative galleries in the 1960’s, including Gallery 10 in 1963 and the Tomac Gallery in 1965.

His artwork has been exhibited in galleries and museums regionally and across the United States, and he has won numerous awards for his work, which can be found in public, private and corporate collections, as well as the permanent collection of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, and the Burchfield-Penney Art Center in Buffalo, NY.
