Mountains, farms, and water, are some of the themes in this exhibit of recent paintings by David Munford, depicting rural scenes from the Catskills to the Hudson River.
The exhibit, "David Munford - Recent Paintings" runs from November 1st - 30th at the Aroma Thyme Bistro, located at 165 Canal Street, Ellenville, NY. There will be an artist reception on Sunday, Nov. 7, from 1-3 p.m.
Munford, a resident of Grahamsville, NY, is a member of the Catskill Art Society, the Wurtsboro Art Alliance, and the Wallkill River School. Many of the paintings in the exhibit were done during "plein air" outings with the Wallkill River School, a nonprofit artist's cooperative, in Orange County, whose mission includes helping to "preserve dwindling open spaces and promote small scale farms."
"It's important that we try to preserve areas of natural scenic beauty, local farms and open spaces, and to protect the quality of our water" says Munford. "With these paintings, I've tried to capture some of the beauty of these places, in paint, in order to impart some of this experience and share it with others so they can enjoy it also."
