Virtual Art Exhibit with Artist David Dauer

Saturday, October 31, 2020
TIME: LOCATION: Online CONTACT: Jean Hlady, 617.698.5757

Milton Painter David Dauer will show a virtual exhibit of his work at our website this month.   “Floral Arrangements,” new work by artist David Dauer represents a transition over the past two years from his surrealistic stories to a new world of nature and life, using flowers as the vehicle to tell his stories.  In his new work, he develops abstract structures with rich textures to create a vibrant underpainting.  With that done, he draws his imagery and then paints using color washes and thick paint to create color.  He says: “Flowers, and in some cases landscapes, are the vehicle to convey my visual conversations.  Flowers represent more than what we see in the natural world.  They represent all life and the interactions we experience around us.” 

David holds both a BFA (UMass,Dartmouth) and an MFA (Kent State U) with continued studies in design from UMass Dartmouth.  He has participated in group and solo shows.  For over 30 years, he worked in the Publishing and Advertising fields as a designer, art director and creative director.  Born in Brooklyn, NY, he grew up in Framingham, MA.  For 35 years he lived in Milton, MA until recently settling in Canton, MA with his wife Debbie.  Click here to visit David’s virtual art exhibit!
