In 1966, following a two-year tour of duty as a Frankfurt-based Department of State Diplomatic Courier, Gary Coleman was seriously considering a life in art when he headed off to Paris to study at the prestigious Ecole des Beaux Arts. Art remained a part of his life afterwards, but raising a family and earning a living put art on the back burner until 1998 when he retired from 30 years of serving as a guidance counselor and teacher of high school English and social studies. He “retired” into being a full-time artist, collecting show prizes (over 20), making sales from coast to coast, and having a number of one person shows.

Gary will be holding a reception at The Gallery on Sunday March 3 and Sunday March 17 from 12:30-3pm.
