Welcome to the website of artist Richard Henry
Richard began his training at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh under
the watchful eye of American Master Harold F. Edmonds. After completing the program, he went on to earn his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree (BFA) from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania in 1979.
Admired as a painter who uses light in a direct and honest manner, his landscapes capture the raw beauty of the Northeast. A passion of the arts is in his DNA, he has successfully mastered many different painting mediums, and with each new exploration, presents a fresh means of expression. Richard’s paintings are distinctly American, his deeply rooted respect for the American Tradition of Realism is expressed in his choice of subject from the simple urban scenes to rural New England landscapes. His work is in private collections both in the United States and abroad.
Art history plays an important role in this artists life. Spending time studying historical and contemporary artists is as important as actually producing works including drawings, paintings and three dimensional art. A constant student of the arts, Richard continues to push his passion by enlisting the support of artists from the local region and connections from Arizona to Boston.
Richard is currently an adjunct professor of art at SUNY Broome a local Community College and is available for private instruction in the areas of oil, watercolor painting and drawing.
