Artist Reception - Lowell Richardson

Please join us for an artist reception for Lowell Richardson. His watercolors are on display at the Joel D. Valdez Main Library August 1-31, 2013. The paintings were all made at the locations pictured, none in the studio. They are like snapshots, souvenirs of a brief time in a specific place.

The materials for watercolor are very portable, allowing Richardson to work quickly in pajamas looking out of a hotel window, or inconspicuously in the park. Sometimes the subject itself is fleeting, as when seen from the deck of a ship.

Richardson says he has no stylistic agenda, whether commercial or aesthetic (although he wouldn't mind selling something, he always hope that the resulting picture holds up to some formal standards).
