'The Finer Touch of Coloring' is about exploring your creativity and discovering your inner colors through the artistic expression of the coloring process.

Artist Richard Stocker describes his fine art illustrations as an intimate expression of his energy and how he lives. In "The Finer Touch of Coloring" exhibit, viewers can observe the transition from the black and white design into the colored-in design.

Richard will be on site, coloring with guests. Talk with others while you color together, and discover the possibilities of creating your own art with his designs.

About Richard Stocker

A native of Detroit, Michigan, Richard Stocker was a Cass Corridor artist and photographer for Fifth Estate Magazine in the 1960’s. He studied art at the Vancouver School of Art, York University, and The Art Institute of Chicago. In his early thirties, Richard made his way west to become part of the burgeoning natural healing movement. For 35 years he has maintained a Rolfing practice. Through his somatic work, Richard brings freedom of movement back to his clients’ bodies. His art also explores movement and freedom.

Richard’s work has appeared on the cover of Tiferet Journal, at Art Prize 2015, in the art collection of Detroit Receiving Hospital, and in the homes of private collectors. In the spring of 2016, he was a featured artist at The Detroit Institute of Arts and The University of Michigan Museum of Art for his innovative work creating community through coloring.
