Please join us for an enlightening evening on October 10th with an Artist Talk by David Dunlop, followed by a Reception, celebrating his solo show, "Pathways of Illumination".
Artist Talk begins at 6:00 pm.
Interested in perception and the visual phenomenon of light, motion and reflection, David Dunlop creates luminous, emotive works in which direct, loose and painterly marks are exceedingly vivid in their contemporary realism. His work extends from expansive landscapes, ephemeral scenes of Grand Central Station and Times Square to his most recent vibrant motifs of flowers and scenes of fleeting moments on shimmering, sandy beaches.
Born in St. Louis, David Dunlop attended the College of Wooster, majoring in Philosophy and English Literature. After extensive travels through Europe, studies at the Art Students League, and a concentration in Printmaking at Robert Blackburn’s Studio in New York, David went on to receive his MFA from Pratt Institute.
In the late 1970’s David moved to Connecticut where he began teaching at Silvermine Arts Center, where he continues to teach today. David travels throughout the country and internationally, teaching and lecturing at prestigious museums and art centers, sharing his personal research, knowledge, passion on the history of art and how one can learn to combine modern techniques and classical traditions with a contemporary approach.
He is the host and writer of the Emmy Award-winning PBS Series, “Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop", directed and produced by Connie Simmons of Simmons Art.
Well-versed in art history, philosophy, painting and the science of visual perception, David is without a doubt a modern-day master, whose work we are honored to share and feature here, at The Drawing Room.
