CLASS OF 1949 | 2016 | ISSUE 2

I received a very thick booklet of art work from Dave Richards, and very impressive art work it is. The subject matter is varied, ranging from private dwellings to churches to sailing vessels to landscapes and even to Christmas cards. All of it is in black and white, obviously copies of originals. The volume of work and its quality suggests that a good deal of Dave’s time is spent producing it.

In addition to his art work, Dave is apparently an author, as he states in his cover letter that he is “currently working on what will complete my Broadfield series of sea stories.” He has also written a collection of short stories, Pollen in the Wind, about families moving westward following our civil war years.

Dave lives in a retirement community, The Nottingham, in Jamesville, N.Y.
