by Andrew Christenberry

For painter Douglas David, you might say his newest show “Bright Lights/Big City,” opening November 7 in the City Gallery, began six years ago in Paris. While browsing through a flea market, David came across an antique painting portraying a commonly painted spot on the Seine River. While the dealer was pushing him to buy […]
