David Dreyer: Southwestern Landscapes
April 13 - May 31, 2009
The Hawn Gallery of the Hamon Arts Library exhibit “David Dreyer: Landscapes from the American Southwest,” paintings and works on paper by David Dreyer, technical advisor and adjunct professor in SMU’s Division of Studio Art. Most of these works focus on Chimney Rock, Colorado and the surrounding area; the remaining works depict sites in West Texas and New Mexico. While forging his own artistic vision, Dreyer has drawn inspiration from earlier Dallas artists such as Jerry Bywaters, Otis Dozier, Josephine Oliver and Olin Travis as well as from his SMU instructors John Alexander, David Bates, and Stephen Wilder.
