The Hospice Savannah Art Gallery displays the works of Dana Richardson and Dicky Stone from early April through June 30, 2015. See images from their April opening here, and read Connect Savannah‘s review here.
A native of Sewanee, Tennessee, Dana Richardson holds a BFA in painting and a MAT from the Savannah College of Art and Design and currently teaches art at Savannah Christian. She spent a year at the plein air Marchutz School of Painting in Aix-en-Provence, situated a few miles form Cezanne’s studio. Dana received a fellowship from the Vermont Studio Center and has studied landscape at the Art Student’s League in New York and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Dana’s pieces are small-scale cityscapes in oil, collage and mixed media “documenting the experience of being in Savannah.” She says, “I always paint outside, either setting my easel up on the sidewalk or in the bed of my truck. Over time I have a chronicle of the changes in the scene; The seasons change, the light moves, things are torn down and built.”
Long-time Savannahian Dicky Stone transforms indigenous wood such as pecan, sycamore and maple into decorative pieces of sculpture. He was one of 30 artists selected to showcase work in the AltCraft category of the prestigious American Craft Council Show in 2011. A self-taught wood carver and turner, Dicky says, “I am coming late in life to what makes my heart sing. My woodwork is what I hope to do until the eyes no longer see, the hands no longer obey and the mind no longer has imagination.”
As always, a portion of sales benefits Hospice Savannah’s Daily Impact Fund which provides unique services to patients, families and our community not otherwise covered by Medicare or other insurances.
