An event every day that begins at 12:30pm, repeating until March 23, 2017

February 17 through March 23 in the Fine Art Gallery

Eluster Richardson’s art strikes a soulful chord. “Uplifting, inspiring, and enlightening” are words frequently used to describe the experience. Born and raised in Tallahassee, Florida, Eluster began painting as a child in the third grade. His works have won numerous awards and have been exhibited in a variety of settings, including the Museum of Florida History, Lemoyne Art Foundation, Florida State Museum of Art, Leepa–Rattner Museum of Art, and Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC. Eluster prefers painting people because, “people are such a challenge” and he especially enjoys painting children. His daughter Jasmine has been the subject of many of his compelling portraits. He is adept in oil and pencil, but his medium of preference is watercolor.

Visit the Gallery from 12:30pm to 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. Gallery is closed during college holidays and on weekends. Admission is free.

Public Reception on Thursday, February 16, TCC Fine Art Gallery, 5:30 to 8 p.m.
