Featured Artist: Richard G. Eastman
Richard G. Eastman of Eastman Gallery will be joining us again this year. We are thrilled to have his wonderful art work featured during our Fall Artisan Market. Richard does more than just pottery; his work is truly breathtaking, his skills are phenomenal and he is pretty amazing to be around. This is his story…
As long as I can remember, I have been fascinated with color. And the richer the color, the greater it attracts me. As a small child, I spent a great deal of time with my grandmother who was a natural born artist. She spent hours with me teaching me the joy of creating everything from painting to sculpting, not to mention planting and maintaining a beautiful flower garden. That relationship and the love of art that she inspired, motivated me to become an Artist, Interior Designer, Architectural Space Planner and
Landscape Designer as well as a Published Poet.
The greatest moments in my life always include something artistic. Some of my favorite memories include visiting with my friends while we create. In my opinion, art is not only something beautiful to look at, but something that can produce major emotions in our lives and can elevate us to a level of consciousness that is difficult to measure. I strive to create things that nurture the soul and cause reflection, things that bring joy and happiness into our lives on a major scale. I think that is why I love to paint large paintings mostly; they are more encompassing and have a greater impact within a room where they are placed. Creating beauty in the world is my passion; it is the most important thing in my life. And though I have received several awards for my artwork, the greatest honor I can receive is when it is cherished by those who own it.
