The art community is feeling a great loss, as we’ve learned about the recent passing of artist, author, teacher, and speaker Richard Schmid.
Throughout his career, which saw more than 50 one-man shows, Richard promoted art education through his books, articles, workshops, seminars, and television presentations. He traveled widely for his subjects, and lived in New Hampshire with his wife, the painter Nancy Guzik. Richard held a Doctorate in Fine Art and was a recipient of The John Singer Sargent Medal for Lifetime Achievement.
“Each one of us is here to make this world a better place through our art,” said Nancy. “What you create is important and who you are is to be treasured, and that together we can fill this world with beauty and make it a better place for all.”
Nancy and the family will be sharing a longer statement at a future date.
If you would like to send Nancy or the family a card you can do so care of:
