Robert Pointer is a Canadian artist, educator, and musician working in central Ontario. His artwork has been on exhibit since the 1970's. A figurative artist, he primarily creates intimate paintings from observation or relating to direct experiences in acrylic on canvas. His paintings can be in the realist, impressionist, or abstract tradition depending on his subject and intention. He retired in 2014 after teaching art and music at the middle school level for over 25 years.
