Carolina Reveries: Legends and Landmarks

When: March 20-May 18 2013

Inspired by popular culture and famous folks from varying creative fields, Charlotte-based artist David Allen Goldberg — better known as “DAG” — has created a new series of works with Carolina ties. The exhibit, Carolina Reveries: Legends and Landmarks, is on display at Summit Coffee in Davidson's historic district, and currently features six acrylic paintings, though more are planned to be added, depending on sales. Bold brush strokes and loud colors define DAG's portraits, which are rich in facial detail despite the unconventional color tones. In the exhibit, you can expect to see quirky paintings of Thelonious Monk at a UFO welcome center, John Coltrane at South of the Border roadside attraction, Barney Fife and Andy Griffith with Big Foot lingering in the background and Western rascal, Fred Kirby, among others.
