Cheshire Academy alumnus Jeff Tallman will be returning to his alma mater in January for an artist talk and reception.
Tallman, who is a paint and sculpture artist, will discuss his work with students, faculty, and staff at the Kohn-Joseloff Gallery, 10 Main St. The talk will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 9. Members of the public are invited to attend.
Tallman’s work will be on display in the Gallery from Jan. 9 through March 5.
As a young man, Tallman built a barn with only a how-to book as his guide. In his spare time, he was a serious woodworker, with he and his wife dedicating themselves to designing and building pieces of furniture.
Using that same skilled energy and talent, Tallman creates art ranging from three-dimensional geometric pieces to Amedeo Modigliani and Pablo Picasso-inspired paintings.
Tallman headed a design-build firm focused on the various aspects of home design.
“Woodworking is primarily for the weekends and, 15 plus years ago, I came to realize that I was pretty good at drawing,” reflected Tallman. “I took a few art classes—that is when I became obsessed with painting.”
