More Information

David Blanchard will be guest artist for the month of September 2022.  A "Meet and Greet the Artist" reception will be held on Sunday, September 18th from 2 - 4 pm, but the exhibit may be viewed at any time the gallery is open.

David Blanchard is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University with a BFA in Painting and Printmaking and has lived in the pastoral beauty of Highland County for twenty-five years.

In 2018, when sheep were the artist’s muse, David won Best in Show at the Taubman Sidewalk Art Show in Downtown Roanoke.  He chose to paint sheep not only because of their proximity but because of their universal imagery.  Sheep are amusing, peaceful, needy, wandering – so relatable.

Since that time, David has continued to evolve and stretch his creative genius. He enjoys the process of painting, its struggles. One painting leads to the next with moments that call for reflection on how he arrived to this specific place in the painting.  When a painting presents the “push and pull” of old and new ideas; foreground and background, layers competing for attention, he strives to navigate these competing forces, his aim being to neither be stumped nor satisfied. His desire is to build and grow with each work.

David participates in numerous shows in Highland and Bath Counties, and the Cities of Richmond, Roanoke, Staunton, Harrisonburg, and Waynesboro, VA.  In addition to his Best in Show Award in 2018 at the Taubman Sidewalk Art Show, he won the Juror’s Award in 2019 at Radius 250 Artspace and an Honorable Mention in 2017 at the Bath County Art Show.
