If you are an art enthusiast, and love to support your local community, then you must stop by our Rowayton brokerage’s special artist reception this Sunday, May 3rd from 4-6 PM. The exciting event is part of the “Sundays at Sotheby’s” series, a monthly program in which team members welcome new local art to display in their office. During Sunday’s much-anticipated reception, local artist David Dunlop will introduce his work, showcasing exquisite landscapes and pure talent.
Dunlop is a painter, teacher and lecturer, as well as the writer and artist on the Emmy Award-winning PBS series Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop. He is also on the faculty of the celebrated Silvermine School of Art in New Canaan, Conn. Based in Wilton, Conn., Dunlop is widely known in the local art scene for his landscape paintings that draw from both Renaissance techniques and modern-day science. He was chosen as the featured artist of this year’s 53rd Annual CCNS Art Show, a local charity fundraiser running from June 4-7 where buyers will enjoy a 40% tax deduction on purchases and proceeds will benefit the Community Cooperative Nursery School in Rowayton. The annual art show brings hundreds of visitors, many of whom are Dunlop’s own dedicated fans, to the town of Rowayton each year.
During the May 3rd “Sunday’s at Sotheby’s” artist reception, our Rowayton office will serve as a preview stage for the patrons of CCNS to come see Dunlop’s work prior to opening night. In addition to showcasing his artwork and greeting guests, at 5 PM Dunlop will discuss the “psychology of perception” and how it is recognized in art. All events of the evening are open to the public.
“I am so excited that David’s work will be featured in our Rowayton brokerage,” said Darien agent Molly Crosland, who spearheads much of the brokerage’s artist series. “Not only is David an incredibly talented artist with quite the local fan base, he is also an amazing lecturer, and hearing him speak at the upcoming artist’s reception will surely be a major highlight of an incredible evening.”
