“Watercolor Journeys” with Invited Artist David R. Daniels – curated by Cathy Hirsh
The Artists of Gallery 209
11:00 AM – 3:00 PM, Saturday, December 4, 2021
Award winning artist David R. Daniels brings his spectacular watercolors to A&M for the month of December. To know David is to know his Art. What the observer sees in David’s paintings is what he feels in his heart. Capturing the spirit of nature and interpreting its beauty through his vision is what David loves most about making art. The medium of watercolor is surprisingly versatile, which feeds into his drive to experiment with materials and methods. David often uses a masking agent and multiple washes to achieve a range of effects, from delicate to bold. Occasionally he adds pastel, ink, or collage. David almost exclusively paints in a large format, which allows him to exaggerate his chosen subject matter. It is an ever-present challenge for him to elevate the medium of watercolor by using innovative techniques while preserving the natural beauty of its transparency.
The Resident Artists’ exhibit and David Daniels’ exhibit will run from Wednesday, December 1st through Friday, December 24th, 2021. Gallery 209’s exhibit will run from December 1st through January 3rd. Viewing hours are 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM, Monday-Saturday, and Sundays by chance or appointment.
