L. Richard Koleszar works in oils and watercolors. He has won numerous awards including Best in Show at the 2016 Brushwork Exhibition at the Rowayton Arts Center.

Mr. Koleszar first studied at the Silvermine Guild Art School (then the college of art) before entering Syracuse University. Though interrupted by his being drafted into the armed services, he served two years in Germany and received the Soldier of The Cycle Award.

That lead him to appreciate the beauty that also is here in New England and ultimately drew him away from New York City.
