Tel Hai Retirement Community invites the public to a life enrichment lecture featuring Chester County artist Richard Bollinger on Friday, March 13 at 1:00 PM in the community’s chapel located off Beaver Dam Road in Honey Brook Township. Admission to the event is free and open to the public.
Bollinger will share his artistic vision, techniques used in his artwork, and how his relationship with God has impacted his life and his art.
Born in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, Bollinger grew up in Lansdowne and attended Temple University and Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia majoring in illustration. His professional career began in 1969 where he worked with a design firm in Philadelphia. Working as both illustrator and designer, his creative and flexible style afforded him a wide range of projects and commissions.
Bollinger’s art is represented in over 125 galleries across America. He has been honored by the Neographic Association with gold and silver awards of excellence on numerous occasions. He was selected by the United States Department of State “Arts in Embassies Program” which promoted and exhibited his work around the world.
Bollinger was awarded the commission to produce the official commemorative painting for Valley Forge National Historic Park for their centennial celebration. Over 150 of his original works have been reproduced as signed, limited editions and his paintings can be found in private and corporate collections across the country.
