An interesting colorful painting (acrylic on canvas) by Eric Dennard, 1942-1993. Signed, dated 1971 in a period lucite frame.

A note about the artist: "Born and reared in Marshall, Texas, he studied in schools there and attended Tufts University and the Boston Museum School. Meredith Davies, a longtime friend and Chestertown resident, said, "He really received his art education in the galleries and jazz clubs of New York, Boston, Washington and Barcelona [Spain]." From 1968 to 1969, he was an artist in residence at St. John's College in Annapolis and from 1969 to 1978 was chairman of the art department at the private Key School in Anne Arundel County. While employed as an art therapist for various state-sponsored alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs, he moved to the Eastern Shore in 1985 and built his studio. His drawings, paintings and sculptures have been shown in such galleries and museums as the Barcelona Museum of Fine Arts, the Washington Gallery of Modern Art and the Baltimore Museum of Art. He had one-man shows at the Illen Gallery in Atlanta, the Virginia Lynch Gallery in Rhode Island and the Watermark Gallery in Annapolis." Eric Dennard's work bears a clear link to the great contributors of the Washington Color School of the 1960's-1970's. Ahead of his time the paintings seem fresh, direct and playful.
