"Interpretations" – Exhibition of Impressionistic Street Scenes by Dave Dunlap
Dave Dunlap started painting in earnest in early 2000, after short-lived lessons as a young teen. Self-taught, his influences by many artists such as Monet, Sargent, and Sorolla, to Richard Schmid and Leonard Wren are obvious in his passionate, driven work.
In the Founder’s Room exhibition he will show his street scenes from thequaint balconies of New Orleans to the diverse streets of San Francisco, focusing on architecture and light, with a few of his recent figure studies, some edgier and a little more urban. Dunlap’s work will be up through June 8th, and he will share an opening reception with the ADAS Rotating Artists’ Gallery on May 9th from 6-8pm.
The Bankhead Theater Art Exhibition program is managed by the Bothwell Arts Center with significant help from Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, Bankhead staff and local volunteers.
