Long before Albany Barn moved into 56 Second Street (about a half of century before, to be precise!), the historic building was a school known as St. Joseph’s Academy. While most of the building looks much different now, some of the old wooden school desks remain, and they’ve landed in the hands of some of the area’s most talented artists for a special 1-night only exhibition.
Meet our second featured artist, David DiPasquale, and save the date for The Chair Show, this Saturday December 1st at Nine Pin Cider!
What is your name how are you active in your local arts community?
I’m active in the local arts community by being a part of as many local arts shows and events as possible. Live painting or vending at the Albany Barn, or hanging my work in a local shop for first Friday. Creating murals and art installations in local shops and small businesses. Creating commissioned artwork for local friends and family, and continuing to create on a daily basis.
What is your art? Feel free to include your medium, process, goals, inspiration, etc.
My art is a mixture of mediums most involving acrylics and spray paint. I’m inspired by nature, our universe, life, sacred geometry, and the ability to create something out of nothing…bringing our visions to reality.
I strive to create art every day and continue to evolve and progress my visions as long as I am making art.
I hope to make this world a brighter and more colorful place with my art, showing the viewer the beauty and Oneness of our existence.
What drew you to the chair show and what was the inspiration for your piece?
I was inspired to be a part of this chair art show to try something different. Lately I have been working on various objects other than canvas such as..old vinyl records, empty spray cans, and recycled objects. So it was a chance to experiment on a new type of canvas. I’m always thankful to try something new and be a part of a local art show in this community. With so many talented artists, it’s always great to see what can come out of a show like this one!
I wanted to create for this show something like a galaxy chair. With images and details of a scene in deep space, mixing in some of my art styles.
I’m happy to be a part of this show and many more in the future!
