Twenty-five years after his first major exhibition at Gadsden Arts, Eluster Richardson shares his latest paintings and sculptures in his sixth major exhibition at the museum. This exhibition reflects upon four series 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 award-winning works have been exhibited across the South and at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC. Image: Eluster Richardson, Ochlocknee Bay at Panacea, oil on canvas, 36 x 12 inches.
