FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Egg Harbor)—May 30, 2019—Richeson School of Art & Gallery and the Village of Egg Harbor’s Public Arts Initiative are excited to announce a joint effort to present the exhibition “A Lifetime of Art,” which celebrates a retrospective of artwork collected by Jack Richeson. The exhibit will open with a free and open to the public reception on Thursday, May 30, from 5PM to 7PM. The artwork on display is on loan to the Donald & Carol Kress Pavilion from Jack Richeson’s private collection.
The exhibit is entitled “A Lifetime of Art.” Jack Richeson has been and continues to be an avid collector of artwork for the past 60 years, and is dedicated to furthering awareness and appreciation for original art and the artists that create it. Jack and the rest of the Richeson family have collected over 500 original pieces of art and continue to add to the collection. “If a piece of art speaks to your heart, it will enrich your environment and your life,” is a tenet of both the Richeson family and the Jack Richeson Co.
This exhibition will remain on display until Fall 2019 and represents pieces from the Richeson collection and includes watercolor, oil, casein and pastel paintings. It is the hope of Richeson School of Art & Gallery that Door County residents and visitors share in the pleasure Jack has found collecting the works of contemporary artists. Artists featured in this exhibit include: Zoltan Szabo, Stephen Quiller, Frank Francese, Ramone Kelly, Buffalo Kaplinski, James Gurney, Chris VanWinkle and Roger Bassemer.
