Richard Cardona, Beach Haven Terrace Member Since May 2008 Artist Statement I am a painter and printmaker living and working in New Jersey. I received my MFA from Tyler School of Art at Temple University, and studied at Tyler's MFA Painting program abroad in Rome. I have exhibited work at galleries across the US and in Italy, Spain and Portugal. Some of my work is in several large private collections. I was also the director of Pentimenti Gallery, in Philadelphia in the early 1990's, and helped to establish Olde City as the art district of Philadelphia, with my involvement in First Friday. I also am currently the Creative Director at Hypno, a small marketing and design agency based in Moorestown I founded with my wife and partner Alison Judah. I love surfing and the summer lifestyle, and particularly love an island at the Jersey Shore, known as LBI - Long Beach Island. The LBI Prints I am selling here are a labor of that love.
