John A. (Jack) Richardson studied for two years at Corcoran School of Art in Washington DC and five years at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia where he was awarded the highest honor of a Scheidt Scholarship for Study and Travel in Europe in 1971.  He taught painting and drawing through the Division of Education at the Philadelphia Museum of Art from 1968 to 1971 before becoming Co-Owner, President and CEO of South Street Art Supply in Phila. (1972 - 1986)  He sold the business to his partner in '86 and moved to the Eastern Shore of Maryland ( Chesapeake Bay area), married and started a family.  He continued painting and teaching thruout  the subsequent years and, in 2001 moved to the Eastern Shore of Virginia.  He opend a studio-gallery in 2002 called "Richardson Gallery" located in the rural, historic town of Onancock, which is at the top of Onancock Creek off the Chesapeake Bay.  Onancock is a few miles from the seaside and its coastal Barrier Islands and bays and about forty miles from Chincoteague Island and the Atlantic Ocean. The open, rural and marine nature of the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Virginia has inspired Jack to pursue his interest in landscape painting, mainly done on location, while his sutdio/gallery has allowed him to explore his art and instruct students throuth still-life subjects.  He has also received numerous commissions for portraits of homes. Jacks'paintings are in collections worldwide.
