REPORTING: MICHAEL EDWARD MILLER
If you went to school in Dalton, Georgia, you might remember Paul Fontana. He was a sixth grade math teacher in Dalton for many years. In 2000, he retired, and you might be surprised to find out that he’s now re-invented himself as a successful painter. His new exhibit, called “Horizons,” has opened at the In-Town Gallery in Chattanooga.
In this interview, I ask him how he did it–how he made the switch from the world of equations and chalkboard erasers to the world of easels and paintbrushes.
Listen to the interview.
