On Thursday, April 17 from 4-5 pm, Applewood, One Spencer Drive, Amherst will hold an opening reception for a photography exhibit entitled, Sky’s the Limit, by Loomis Village resident Donald David. The opening is free and open to the public.
The subjects of Mr. David’s images are those of nature and wildlife. Although there are no photographic topics in which he is not interested, he pursues subjects in his travels concentrating on landscapes, creatures, great and small, and unique lighting, color, and texture that define a region and give the viewer an appreciation for beauty and a sense of place.
A number of his photographs have been selected as prize winning images by Photographer’s Forum Magazine “Best of Photography” in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010. His photographs also have been featured in books, magazines and on the cover of the Amherst farm book, “Harvesting History”. He is a member of the Vermont Center for Photography and the Pioneer Valley Photographic Artists.
Mr. David has exhibited at the New England Camera Club, Robert Floyd Gallery, Cooley Dickinson Hospital Gallery, BayState Medical Center Gallery, Valley Photo Center, and Nashawannuck Gallery, Vermont Center for Photography, Burnett Gallery, the Plymouth Art Center, and the Jasper Rand Art Museum in the Westfield Athenaeum.
Mr. David spent his career as a Senior Science Fellow and Research Manager at the Monsanto Company. Also he was a Research Professor at the University of Massachusetts and an Adjunct Professor at the University of Minnesota. His career training and interests have reinforced his attentiveness to nature and landscape photography.
The exhibit will run through July 20, 2014. Visitors are welcome by appointment. To schedule a visit, please call Christine at Applewood, 413-253-9833.
