George Colin is an 83 year old folk artist, known for his bright and colorful drawings. Many he does in chalk pastel on black paper. He recently illustrated a poem called ‘The Turtle’ by Vachel Lindsay which is now sold as a children’s book. His work has been shown around the country, including the Smithsonian. He and his wife own and run an art gallery where their home is, in Salisbury. Some of Colin’s art is currently on display at the Charles E.
