“Barns- Lost & Found” : The Art of David Zerba

During the month of October Kennedy Gallery will feature original 3-dimensional works on wood by New Hampshire artist David Zerba.  Incorporating repurposed antique wood, game pieces, yardsticks, decks of cards, cider presses, old labels, and multiple other objects discovered in antique shops and flea markets, David creates unique sculptures for your walls.  

 Drawing on his background as a Graphic Designer, David paints idyllic, imagined scenes ( most often including barns ) onto his constructions, giving them a nostalgic, Folk Art feeling.  With their combination of muted colors and flattened composition they remind us of simpler times.  However, David’s use of a sophisticated palette and his strong feel for the shape and texture of architectural elements reaches beyond the naïveté’ that characterizes most Folk Art.

Please join us for an Opening Reception to meet David, view his work, and enjoy refreshments on Friday, October 6th, from 5-8 pm in conjunction with the monthly Art Round Town Gallery Walk.
