What’s new at the Museum?
From the Forgotten Coast to the Red Hills: Art of Eluster Richardson opens February 9th in the Tallahassee Museum’s Phipps Gallery. Poignant, uplifting, and inspiring are words often used to describe the experience when viewing Richardson’s works. A Tallahassee native, he found the love of painting North Florida in the third grade. He is adept in oil and pencil, but his medium of preference is watercolor and his subject of choice is people because “people are such a challenge.” Richardson’s works have won numerous awards and have been exhibited nationwide including the Museum of Florida History, Lemoyne Art Foundation, Florida State Museum of Art, Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art, and Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. Richardson’s Tallahassee Museum exhibit, however, will share exclusively never before exhibited works and its opening coincides with Matinee for the Arts.
