Jun 29, 2017 @ 6:00am   Events, Member Events

Richard Boyd Art Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of a solo exhibition of original paintings by watercolorist Randy Eckard on June 1 at 10:00 a.m. A trained commercial and fine artist living in Blue Hill, Maine Randy’s career as a fine artist working exclusively with watercolors spans more than three decades. Eckard is known for his use of light and shadow, with the true subject of most of his paintings being light and how it defines and shapes the scene before him. His iconic architectural landscapes are expertly detailed and capture the essence of New England. Randy’s paintings have won over 190 awards in watercolor throughout New England and the Southeast. His paintings are widely collected and included in numerous private and corporate collections. The public is invited to meet Randy at a reception at Richard Boyd Art Gallery Saturday, June 3 between the hours of 12:00 noon and 3:00 p.m. when he will be available to discuss his current series of paintings. The exhibit is open free of charge between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily through June 29, 2017.
