Subject: David Newton Exhibit at The Tointon Gallery
David Newton, a third generation Colorado native, captures the vastness of planets on canvas for this exhibit: Space & Spirit – The Swirling Dance. His award winning paintings will be on display in the Tointon Gallery from March 21 – April 26.
“I have painted these realistic images of the eight known planets of our sun because I have long been enchanted by what has come to be known to us of their majestic beauty,” said Newton about his paintings. “These worlds are always out there, often visible in the night sky, but not always so readily appreciated by us ‘down here.’”
On Friday, March 21 visitors have a chance to meet and talk with the painter at the artist reception from 5 – 7 pm.
A self-taught painter of 40 years, David has received national recognition for his renditions of space art. Newton has shown his work for years in Greeley, Estes Park, and Loveland, most recently at The Master’s Fine Art in Loveland, CO.
Catch David’s colorful artwork displayed as a slide show during the Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra’s performance Gustav Holst’s The Planets, Friday, April 6 at 4pm.
The Tointon Gallery is located in the Greeley Downtown Recreation Center at 651 10th Ave. The Gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 9 am – 5 pm, and during performances in the Monfort Concert Hall. Gallery admission is free. For more information contact Kim Snyder at 970-350-9450 or visit www.greeleyart.com
