New Westminster-based artist David A. Haughton has announced a new exhibition of his landscape paintings.
Haughton's works will be on display at Vancouver's Visual Space Gallery from September 23 to October 6 in an exhibition titled Ships, Mountains & the Sea V.
"At the beginning of August," says Haughton in a press release, "I crossed the border and attended the first Seattle art walk in 18 months--the renewed tradition of 'First Thursday'. It was a real celebration. Over 350 people came through Gallery 110 in Pioneer Square. Vaccinated, all wearing masks, people were, for that evening at least, without fear. They looked at the art with an intensity that I had never seen--‘drinking’ it in like hikers after a desert journey consume water--thirstily, sloppily, letting the images splash over them, bringing relief and joy.
"It is with similar exhilaration that I am offering this reexamination of the B.C. coastal landscape," he adds. "Ships, Mountains & the Sea V will be the first of three planned exhibitions reexploring old themes--the cranes, the ships and the mountains of the Burrard Inlet and Vancouver Harbor--the colors, forms and juxtapositions of which I have never ceased to find wildly inspiring."
