About the Artist
2022 HONORARY CO-CHAIR: Richard (Dick) Grodt studied at the Kansas City Art Institute. He believes that the objective of his art is to go beyond recording what he sees into what he imagines; to create paintings that are not only visually pleasing but are also richly evocative. As Dick describes it, he dances with a brush instead of his feet. Dick finds that the gracefulness of watercolor has transformed his life. Both painting and teaching watercolor classes cocoon him from his disability and enable him to pursue a rewarding and successful life. One of his paintings has hung in the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Dick . He says, "It is the heart that gives life to Art!"
Art on display at Courage Kenny and online gallery.
