Moving Through: Works by David A. Douglas
Thursday, December 8th, 7-9pm
Working at the intersection of drawing, painting and photography, David A. Douglas creates large-scale works that explore the power of place. Depicting personally significant landscapes on a monumental scale, Douglas offers the viewer the opportunity to enter the works on their own terms and experience the highly charged potency that lies within the ordinary moment. Amplifying the inner beauty within the ordinary, Douglas’ works resonate with the intense simplicity of a poem, simply stated yet somehow glowing with life from the inside out.
A native of Northern Virginia, Douglas has works in numerous public, private and corporate collections, including the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the Chrysler Museum, and the Academy Art Museum. His work has been shown in various solo and group exhibitions, including exhibits with Chuck Close, Robert Mapplethorpe, Diane Arbus, and Sally Mann. Douglas received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Virginia Intermont College and a Master of Fine Arts degree in paining from James Madison University. He teaches painting, drawing and photography at the Episcopal High School in Alexandria, Virginia. Read more about the artist.
This exhibition will be on display from December 8, 2016 – January 21, 2017.
