Rob Longley began to study with Betty Warren and Dick Goetz, starting in the summer of 1968. During his senior year in high school he also took classes with Warren at the Albany Institute of History and Art. He was accepted to the BU School of Fine Arts in 1969, graduating with a BFA in 1973. During summers he continued to study with Warren and Goetz, and then in 1971 he began to study with Henry Hensche. Rob studied with Hensche for the next nine summers, and was class monitor in the late 70’s. Even after he stopped going to classes every day, he lived in several of Hensche’s studios on Pearl and Brewster Streets, so Hensche frequently came by to look at and talk about his work.
In 1976 Longley was awarded a Greenshields Foundation grant. He was also awarded a grant by the state of New York in 2000.
Rob frequently sent his work to juried exhibitions over the years, was accepted into many, and was awarded prizes in several, including Best in Show at the Silvermine Art Center.
Longley has had numerous one-man shows and has been represented by galleries in New York City, upstate NY, Simsbury, Connecticut, Wellfleet, and Provincetown, MA. Currently he shows at the Cortile Gallery in Provincetown, and he has a studio there as well. He lives in Provincetown.
