Gloman has converted a large box truck into a mobile studio from which he paints directly outdoors. The dirt paths, fields and small streams around Hatfield provide him with inspiration as they are constantly changing.
The show will include both large paintings and smaller works. Gloman says he has been “inspired by the heroic six foot paintings by 19th century English landscape painter, John Constable, and the heroic pastoral paintings of Claude Lorrain and Nicolas Poussin.” In these new works, Gloman hopes to capture the essence of the locations in which he paints, and the feeling of being present in the moment by painting directly outdoors.
Dave Gloman is a Resident Artist at Amherst College where he teaches drawing and painting. The Grubbs Gallery is open on weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to noon.
