Printmaker James Robinson is a native of Dallas, and a 1958 graduate of Sunset High. He served four years in the U. S. Air Force, worked at Parkland Memorial Hospital for three years, before earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from North Texas State University (now the University of North Texas). In 1969 and 1970 he taught art at Lincoln High School in Dallas. Robinson studied printmaking under Lawrence T. Scholder (1942—2017) at Meadows School of the Arts and graduated in 1971 as the first recipient of the Master of Fine Arts degree awarded by the SMU Division of Fine Arts. That year Robinson accepted a position on the art faculty of Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas.

This two-color etching appeared in the artist’s exhibition which opened July 17, 1971, in the University Gallery of the Owen Fine Arts Center.

Another etching by James Robinson resides in the University Art Collection in the care of Meadows Museum.
