Rick Philips, impressionnist

The Peninsula Gallery in Lewes, Delaware, USA presents "Lasting Impressions". This is a solo exhibition by impressionist artist Rick Phillips, from Saturday October 1st to Sunday October 23rd. Incredibly close to Cézanne and his still lifes, this up-and-coming contemporary American artist has developed a very particular style where the contrast of colors and light generate form in all its evocative power.

His works of art are part of many private collections, including that of President Joe Biden. Rick Phillips teaches at the Delaware College of Art and Design, the Darley Arts Center and the Tyler Arboretum.
