David Ernest Longwell
November 4, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - December 11, 2016 @ 4:30 pm
Tubac Center of the Arts is pleased to present the artwork of Tucson artist, David Longwell. Longwell is an abstract painter working primarily in oils. Earning a degree in painting from Washington University in St. Louis, MO, he then went on to study at the New York Studio School in NYC. Most pivotal in his development of approach and philosophy of painting came from his years in Provincetown, MA at the Fine Arts Work Center, first as a visual fellow, then as visual chairman of the residency program. There he met and befriended a number of students of abstract expressionist Hans Hoffman. Their aesthetic philosophy of painting was imprinted onto his psyche. Painting became a formal means of self-exploration, psychological individuation and personal expression. His emphasis has been on the beneficial fruits and rewards of painting as process rather than a commercial pursuit. For the past twenty-three years he has been the preparator in the curatorial department of the Tucson Museum of Art.
Join us for the opening reception, Friday, November 4th, 5-7pm and meet the artist.
