The retrospective of a 35-year art career by a Sugar Hill resident went on display Monday, Aug. 1, at George Pierce Park in Suwanee, the county said in a news release.
Chris Hamman, a member of the North Gwinnett Arts Association, began paining in the 1970s in the Midwest.
He later studied with Ernie Haring, a well-known regional water colorist, and started painting using watercolors. After getting married and moving to the West Coast, he began to work with oils, acrylics and other mediums. He has lived in the Atlanta area since 2004.
The exhibit will be open to the public to Nov. 29, Mon. through Thurs. 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Fri. 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sat. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The exhibit will be in the Community Recreation Center.
