Floral Arrangements

It is with great pleasure that I was given the opportunity to again show at the Wotiz Gallery within The Milton Public Library in Milton, MA. It has been more than two years since my work was displayed in this wonderful venue. It of course was a disappointment when Covid-19 changed all our lives and how we have run our everyday life. In this New-Normal I'm still very happy that the Wotiz Gallery still lives and the work of artists showing goes on virtually. The positive of course is that my work will be online through the Library's website for many years to come.

What follows is the Press Release from the Library:

Artist David Dauer will show a virtual exhibit of his work at our website in October, from 10/1 through 10/31.   "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.  You can see the exhibit starting 10/1 at:  https://miltonlibrary.libguides.com/art
