Omar Richardson, A Lost Past in a Forgotten Future, 2010-12.

Gallery 221@HCC is pleased to present Omar Richardson: My Story My Truth, on view January 14 – February 28, 2019.

Omar Richardson (b. 1982 in Nassau, Bahamas) uses the medium of printmaking to explore memory, reflection, loss, re-invention, and emotion. His large-scale prints communicate these concepts through multilayered symbols and rich details, often embedded in the designed likenesses of people who have touched his life. A highly personal and emotive exhibition, My Story My Truth will be Richardson’s first exhibition to feature exclusively black and white woodblock prints and monoprints. Richardson is a Tampa-based artist who received his BFA, MA, and MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design as well as a BFA from the Art Institute of Atlanta.

A reception will be held on Thursday, February 28 from 5:00-8:00pm, with an artist lecture to begin at 6:00pm. The event will take place on the 3rd floor of the Learning Resources Center / Library building (DLRC), HCC Dale Mabry Campus. Food, libations, and music will be provided for free, courtesy of the gallery.

The event is free and open to the public; parking is also free on campus in any open lot.

Gallery 3@HCC is located on the third floor of the Library/Learning Resources Center Building (DLRC) on the HCC Dale Mabry Campus.
