                                                 Richard Fayram Featured at VIVA Gallery in September

Richard Fayram will be the featured guest artist at VIVA Gallery’s monthly First Thursday reception on September 1. Dick is an accomplished watercolor painter who resides in Cross Plains, Wisconsin.
Dick developed an interest in art while studying to be a landscape architect at Michigan State University. Courses in art and architectural delineation served as the basis for training as an artist and a lifelong interest in creating art. While at the university, his personal art work was primarily in acrylics. After graduation he switched to watercolors as his favorite medium.

Because of his profession as a landscape architect, Dick’s work has naturally emphasized landscapes, buildings, wildflowers and other elements of the rural landscape. In his professional and artistic endeavors, native plants have always been an important focus. A few years ago, Dick decided to concentrate on winter landscapes along the Wisconsin Ice AgeTrail, a resource that is unique to Wisconsin and the Wisconsin landscape. Retirement afforded more time to focus on art in other seasons, and on woodworking as well. The frames for his recent work are hand made from quarter- sawn white oak and other woods.
