North Lake College to Feature David McCullough in Exhibit

IRVING, Texas. 16 March, 2000 - The North Lake College gallery is featuring the work of David McCullough from March 25 through April 17 as part of its gallery series. A reception for the artist will be held on Thursday, March 30, from 7:30-9:00 pm in the gallery.

The Dallas artist will include paintings, watercolors, collage, and sculpture in the exhibit. He is known for his vibrant color and use of texture in all of his pieces. He has shown his work nationally and is included in some of the most prestigious public and private collections throughout the United States.

For the past ten years, he has exhibited mainly throughout the southwest, drawing images and inspiration from nature. Time spent in Australia's outback as well as in the four corners area (New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado), have proven to the predominant influences for his latest work.

About his experience in Australia, he said: "I became familiar with the landscape and let it come to me. The first things I started connecting with were the eucalyptus trees. Ultimately, I found that what you can't see is where it's at."

McCullough's abstract paintings resemble brightly colored images of geographic shapes and strong, bold line. He mixes sand with acrylic pigments, achieving a gritty, sometime glittery texture. "Sand is one of the ways I can represent the earth in my work," he says. "Silica resonates sound energy; it's in crystals and in our bodies."

North Lake College is a part of the Dallas County of Community College District.
