Eluster Richardson: Three Decades

January 14 – March 19, 2022

Sara May Love Gallery

Twenty-five years after his first major exhibition at Gadsden Arts, Eluster Richardson will share his latest paintings and sculptures in his sixth major exhibition at the museum. This exhibition will reflect upon several series and phases Richardson has developed through his art career, from the 1980s to today. Born and raised in Tallahassee, Florida, Richardson began painting in the third grade, and while he never stopped drawing and painting, it wasn’t until retiring from an engineering career that the artist could fully concentrate on honing his craft. Richardson’s fascination with family traditions and history, particularly the people and places of North Florida, has resulted in a body of work that is treasured by history and art lovers of the region. His works have won numerous awards and have been exhibited across the state of Florida and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC.
