Peabody Watercolors Gallery
ADDRESS: 102 Church Street
Frank Peabody III (b. 1934) is a 1956 graduate of Princeton
University and spent most of his life as a busy executive in the
professional services industry in Louisville, Kentucky, and later
in New York. His talent as an artist did not emerge until after his
retirement. Since then, he has aggressively studied and painted
locally throughout Vermont, South Carolina, and in a wide range of locations from Burma to Corsica to Venice, throughout Italy, Spain, the South Pacific, and many places in between.
Frank’s inspiration comes from places he travels or the simple
beauties he witnesses in nature. His landscapes, still lifes and
figures are realistic, yet sometimes possess a humorous, loose
quality that reflects his emotions. Other times they simply
represent the serenity he experiences while creating. He finds
peace in the contemplative process of painting and those
around him find joy and wonder in the results.
