"OUT OF THE WOODS", recent acrylic paintings on a variety of supports by David E. Kearns

Gallery II is located on the side of the Wolf Kahn Studio Building at the Vermont Studio Center, 80 Pearl Street, in Johnson, VT.

"In January 2011, I embarked on a cross-country road trip with my dog, Seamus. After an extended stay in the Bay Area, including a month-long studio residency at the Last Avenue Studios in San Francisco's Outer Sunset neighborhood, we found our way back to Vermont. "OUT OF THE WOODS" is a show of work made during and immediately following this trip. After a dozen years painting in, and inspired by, the Vermont woods, I found new inspiration in the landscape of the American Southwest, the Pacific Coast, and the hills of the East Bay, as well as the various urban locales and long-deserted ghost towns we explored."
