ARTIST: David Montgomery
David Montgomery has been living and painting in the San Luis Valley of Southern Colorado for over thirty years. After enjoying art in public schools, he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Colorado State University. His art work is shaped by the monumental vistas and pristine environs of this rural area at the headwaters of the Rio Grande.
Montgomery shares his love of these western spaces with his plein air pieces as well as larger studio landscapes that fill walls. He has taken art trips to Europe and the sub-tropics of Florida, widening his imagery while pushing his artistic envelope. Montgomery also pursues studies in human figure rendition.
Montgomery has been given national recognition by American Artist magazine which has featured him in two articles. As part of a joint project with American Artist magazine, the Forbes Magazine Corporation invited Montgomery to their corporate estate in Balleroy, Normandy for a week of painting. He has also exhibited twice in the Forbes Gallery in New York City.
All works are oil on linen.
