A retrospective featuring the work of Richard Nelson, artist and educator.
This exhibition spans 45 years of Nelsons work and teaching philosophies and
is a unique opportunity to experience and learn more about Nelsons tri-hue
watercolor technique including hands-on experiences that demonstrate some of
the basic principles. Special workshops by the artist are scheduled through
out the exhibition.
Richard Nelson grew up in Hawaii and returned to Oahu after earning his
bachelors degree in art from the California College of Arts and Crafts. He
was the Art Department Chairman at Punahou School for 22 years. A sabbatical
at Yale enabled him to study under renowned colorist and Bauhaus artist Josef
Albers. He earned his masters degree during another sabbatical at Ohio State
University. In 1978 he left teaching to pursue his painting full-time, he
still conducts workshops throughout the USA and Canada. Nelson is also very
active in the Hawaiian community art scene, serving on committees and task
forces for the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts.
We are most grateful for the generosity of the A&B Foundation and First
Hawaiian Bank in supporting the Richard Nelson: In Retrospect exhibit. Mahalo
for your support.
