From August 2 - 25 the Art Cellar Gallery will be showcasing the amazing detailed work of long time gallery artist David Birmingham in his solo show, Master of Realism. This exhibition will feature new works small and large on canvas and panel and even a few rare still lifes by Birmingham.

 An exquisite painter of landscapes, Birmingham captures the radiant qualities of light and space in a moment. The beautiful mountain scenes of the High Country, such as vistas and mountain roads, lend themselves to Birmingham’s paint brush. He brings you into his paintings with stunning detail, lofty clouds and falling leaves blowing in the wind. From winding pathways in the countryside to lakes and rivers flowing through the woods, there is no question that David Birmingham is a true master of realism.
