Artist Opening at Mitchell Giddings Fine Arts: David Rohn Watercolors 1974-2016


Date & Time: 
Mar 16 2017 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm

 

March 16 - April 30: Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is proud to feature a retrospective of watercolor paintings by Vermont painter David Rohn in David Rohn Watercolors: 1974-2016. For the first time, MGFA will devote the entire gallery to a single artist with this exhibition of over thirty-five paintings. An opening reception is set to take place Thursday, March 16 at 5, with an Artist Talk scheduled for Saturday, March 25 from 5-7pm.

Rohn’s ability to speak through watercolor suggests an element of magic in his choice and command of materials and technique. Never intentionally arranged, the objects in Rohn’s compositions create a relationship of inherent balance and established order, bringing harmony and satisfaction to the eye. Remarks Rohn, “Sometimes a hidden composition seems so resolutely preconceived it is like finding an unknown Bach Partita crumpled in the trash.” His extraordinary gift of playful observation allows an unexpected appreciation and analysis of the common object.

Growing up in Ludington, Michigan, Rohn was accepted into the University of Michigan College of Architecture and Design on the strength of a portfolio of watercolors, where he earned his Bachelors and Masters in painting and printmaking. Much of his student work was featured in juried shows throughout the Midwest. As a formative artist he taught first at Windham College as the chair of the art department, then at Drew University, New York University, the National Academy of Design, and Queens College. He resides and continues to paint in Putney, Vermont.

Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is committed to presenting innovative, contemporary works that stimulate and challenge both the seasoned collector and aesthetic explorer.
