Richard Lennox has been painting in the New Hope – Lambertville area for decades. Born in 1939 in Oceanside, New York, he is a 1966 graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where he studied with Franklin Watkins and Hobson Pitman. His father was an accomplished furniture maker, and for many years Richard ran the family business, The Lennox Shop, just north of Lambertville, NJ. In the late 1990’s Richard sold the business so he could devote himself full-time to painting. He keeps his studio where he resides in his family’s 18th-century farmhouse with his wife Stana, a retired school teacher.
Lennox has exhibited his work extensively and he has participated in many juried exhibitions throughout the local region. He has been granted extensive awards for his accomplishments, beginning in 1984 at the Phillips’ Mill Annual Exhibition. He has been accepted for exhibition at numerous museums, including the Delaware Art Museum, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Art Alliance, the Woodmere Art Museum, the Hunterdon Museum, and the Allentown Art Museum. Galleries that have displayed his work include the National Academy of Design, Cheltenham Art Center, the Marion Locks Gallery, the Peale House, Phillips' Mill, Artworks, the Coryell Gallery, Rosenfeld Gallery, Ruth Morpeth, and the Somerville Manning Gallery.
