For painter and educator, Daniel Springer, this latest solo show of his paintings, prints and mixed media assemblage represents decades of work all exploring two common thematic ideas: solitude & solace. On exhibit from July 1 thru July 31, 2012 at the Brewster Ladies Library, the show includes work that ranges from observational to abstract expression. A reception for the artist will be held on Saturday, July 7 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Springer’s work reflects the struggle between the intrusion of humanity and the harmony of nature. It is an expression of his love of solitude and his search for solace. From the hurried impressions of a fleeting moment to the complete abstraction of form and space, the cumulative effect is at once luminous and atmospheric — work that evokes an emotional response.
Earning his BFA at Parsons School of Design in NYC, Springer also studied performance and theater design at Syracuse University and holds his Masters in English from Northeastern University. He currently chairs the Fine Arts program at Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School where has been teaching for the last seventeen years. In 2010 Springer was named the “Arts Educator of the Year” by the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod.
In addition to his duties at D-Y, Springer serves on the Advisory Board of the Cape Cod & Islands Art Educators Association and teaches at the Cape Cod Museum of Art. He also continues to present workshops at annual National Art Education Association conferences. Springer continues to work with colleagues across the region to advocate for and defend the Arts in our public and private schools.
He has had three previous solo shows at the Brewster Ladies Library, in 2006, 2007 and in 2009. In addition, his paintings were featured in two group shows at the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis, MA. Springer regularly shows his work at PAAM. He was part of CC&IAEA group shows in Centerville, South Yarmouth and in Falmouth in 2011-2012.
