Escape the summer heat with “Visions of Color: The Works of David Shoemaker” opening June 19 at Iredell Museums! Summer is beginning to set in, and we all know that means warm weather and summer vacations. At Iredell Museums, David Shoemaker’s artwork is a mini-vacation of its own. Transport yourself across borders to Italy, Spain, and France and view the stunning landscapes these countries have to offer. Or simply get lost in scenic views found right around home.
David Shoemaker’s artwork combines bright colors and lines to create a unique style. It falls between realism and post-impressionism, with more realist undertones. No two pieces look the same. David states that his paintings are “…a reflection of many deep feelings. It’s not only the creative process, but the passion to bring ideas and colors together.” His artwork can be found in many collections in both the private and corporate sectors.
Iredell Museums will host a reception for the public on June 19, 2015 from 6-8 PM. Stop by the Court Street Gallery at 134 Court Street and see David’s art for yourself! “Visions of Color” will be up through July 31, 2015.
David Shoemaker’s life is one that has been surrounded by art. He was introduced to it at an early age by his parents, and he studied art at the universities he attended. He worked with watercolors after graduating college, but he soon found that his passion was oil painting. He has studied under Mr. George Thompson, a highly-successful artist from New York City, and still keeps in contact with his former mentor.
David states that his “…true gratification comes from watching people enjoy the paintings I create. They are a reflection of many deep feelings.” His artwork can be found in many collections, both private and corporate. He has traveled abroad to Italy, Spain, and France, where he gained inspiration for many of his paintings.
