Tiffany Peay Jewel Box is hosting artist Peter Dickison this holiday season with an enchanting show: Forever Flowers. Come see his amazing oil paintings and buy a beautiful still life or a perfect small painting from the Petites Collection featuring roses, zinnias and more. The Petites are sweet 4"x4" personal paintings that are great gifts; portable art or as a set arranged on the wall.
Peter Dickison, native of Rhode Island, studied painting at the Swain School of Design in New Bedford, Massachusetts, the Yale University Summer School for Art, and the Parson's School of Design Graduate Program in Painting.
After school, Dickison was studio assistant to the artist Nell Blaine (1922-1996), whose exuberant spirit for life and painting was a strong influence. As Assistant Teacher for Drawing with the Cleveland Institute of Art in Lacoste, France, he worked with drawing professor Leonard Stokes, taught landscape and figure drawing, and painted prolifically in the landscape of Provence.
He has exhibited at the Prince Street Gallery in New York City, SUNY Purchase Art Gallery, the Newport Art Museum, Crowell's Fine Art in New Bedford and Deblois Gallery in Newport. He is currently on the faculty of the Newport Art Museum.
