Angry White Men + 80 Views of Mount Baker

You are invited to two very different exhibitions of new work in Seattle and Vancouver in September 2018. Angry White Men further explores the Faces of Evil Series, while 80 View of Mount Baker completes the Mount Baker series. Both feature artist talks and opening receptions with refreshments.

ANGRY WHITE MEN – A Continuing Exploration of the Face of Evil
September 6 – 29, 2018
Gallery 110 at 110 Third Avenue S., Seattle WA 98104
Reception: Saturday, September 22, 2018, 5-7 PM – please RSVP to haughton-art@shaw.ca
Artist’s Talk: “Why paint Angry Men?” 5 PM, Thursday September 20, 2018

A new series of provocative paintings features portraits of neo-Nazis, livid gun advocates, and disenfranchised, resentful and angry protesters. Rich with texture, they capture the rage and violence of angry white men as they express their frustration, desperation and fear towards people who are not like them. The images are taken from news photos in France, Hungary, Bosnia, Poland, England, Scotland, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Canada and the USA.

Angry White Men is showing at the same time as Notorious Women – an exhibition of paintings by my Gallery 110 colleague Li Turner. Her beautiful and provocative works provide an interesting counterpoint to mine. The reception will be 5-7 PM, Saturday September 22, 2018. Please come! I will be mailing invitations, but as of this moment, consider yourself invited, and please RSVP if you are coming. NB: It’s an excuse for a romantic weekend getaway, even if my works explore darkness, the city of Seattle is beautiful!


80+ VIEWS OF MOUNT BAKER – A Final Homage to Hokusai
September 13 – 26, 2018
Visual Space Gallery, 3352 Dunbar Street, Vancouver, BC
Reception: Saturday, September 15, 2018, 5-7 PM – please RSVP to haughton-art@shaw.ca

Please plan on attending the reception on Saturday September 15, 2018. Come share some excellent food, a glass of wine, and toast the “old man crazy about painting” with us. Email me and let me know you are coming!

ASKING FOR HELP
Gallery 110 in Seattle is where I have been able to exhibit my more difficult work – the Kindertotentanz, Bad Guys and now, Angry White Men. It is a small, artist-run, non-profit organization. I am asking you, please, to make a donation. We are raising funds with a goal of $5000, which will fully fund two 18- month Gallery 110 memberships for young artists. Your donations will give them the opportunity to work and exhibit with our non-profit gallery community. Any donation – large or small – will help! Donate safely using the Paypal “Donate” button on the Gallery 110 website.

With great affection, David

    You paint angry people with the same perception as you depict bucolic panoramas. The subjects’ intense passion, albeit negative and hate-filled, is clearly evident in your work. Their anger is not just based on hatred of “people not like them;” rather they are also expressing rage that the world is changing very rapidly as well as their role in it. Your Angry White Men portraits are powerful and evocative. No one gets to stand on the emotional sidelines when viewing them.
