Come experience a new collection of figurative works from the artist David Dixon. Known for his energetic landscapes, the artist has focused his talent on a body of work exploring our relationship with the art itself and the complex meanings and reactions we have to seeing humans on canvas.

New Jersey resident, David Dixon started his painting career after years of being a successful chef in America and Europe. He descends from a long line of artists, most notably well known Illustrator Steven Gross. While living in New York City, Dixon studied at the Art Students League and Spring Street Studios, as well as traveling cross-country many times a year under the mentorship of Western artists, primarily Steven Lee Adams and Russell Chatham (Dixon is the sole artist to have had this privilege). Eventually his love of the West compelled him to relocate to Utah, from which the inspiring vistas could be easily accessed.  He has won accolades for his raw and emotional figurative paintings too. The artist notes, “It took a long time before I gave myself permission to evolve and move away from earlier successes, but this is the essence of the true artist... as we grow personally, so must the art.”

One sees the results of risking and searching in the artists work as well as feeling the sublime power of his vision. Currently Dixon is painting evocative figurative tableaus with an emphasis on less abstract and more representational handling.

The Library welcomes inquiries from local artists and arts organizations regarding use of the exhibit space.  For further information, please contact the Montclair Public Library (973) 744-0500 ext. 2221.
