Having gained artistic recognition over the last several decades, today Hollis Richardson is very selective in participating in juried shows and exhibitions and galleries. He “walks to his own drumbeat” rather than conforming to the rigid genre requirements most exhibitions use to guide their selections. Instead, he prefers to follow his independent inclinations in what he produces. Some of his credentials over his long career as an award-winning artist include:
1998 – 2020, Various shows with Opus Gallery, Artist's Archives of the Western Reserve, Ohio Online Juried Artists, etc.
