David Slader Paintings

Ford Gallery of Art

October 2021

An exhibit featuring paintings by contemporary artist David Slader.

Slader’s abstract works celebrate the movement and expression of the human figure, captured in disjointed parts and brilliantly colored patterns. A leg, an arm, a foot may escape one panel to be painted on another, creating a unified yet dynamic piece.

Drop in to meet the artist and learn more about his work during the following events in the month of October. Personal tours available by appointment.

Artist Reception: Saturday, October 2, 4pm – 8pm.

Open Studios Weekends: October 9 – 10 & 16 – 17 (part of Portland Open Studios)
