After its spectacular gallery grand opening in December, Alan Simmons Art + Design presents its first show of 2013 with a reception and solo gallery debut for David McGlothlin, noted local Dallas artist. The event will be held this Saturday, January 12, 2013, 5:00-8:30 PM at 1415 Slocum Street, Suite 105, Dallas, TX 75207, 214-745-ALAN (2526), Dallas Design District. David McGlothlin’s exhibition will run from January 12 – February 16, 2013.

David McGlothlin has been passionate about and immersed in the world of art since he was a child. His art career spans more than three decades. He began with freelance artwork as an illustrator and painter. David worked on a variety of projects including children’s books (e.g., Barney the dinosaur series) and game boards for Milton Bradley. He also did countless commercial projects locally and nationwide, including store murals and paintings for Arby’s; McDonalds; the Plaza of the Americas; Easter Seals; Lone Star Park; the Galleria Ice Rink; and North Park Mall. Most noteworthy, David has a permanent mural in the African exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art.

David’s experience in creating illustrations and paintings for commercial projects helped him to hone his style as a fine art painter. He has participated in many local group shows over the years, including exhibitions at the MAC and 500X galleries, in addition to several open studio showings at his space in the historic Continental Gin building in Deep Ellum.

In his inaugural solo gallery debut, David will feature several bodies of his work, including mixed media pieces on board, canvas, and paper. All of David’s art combines techniques, such as print making, collage, and painting. Bold imagery in his current work embodies subjects ranging from wild animals to family genealogy; elements of pop art; technical drawings; and narratives. A key example is David’s paper bag piece, “Bag It,” which utilizes lunch bags with acrylic paint and ink.

“David is a dynamic, talented artist and a consummate professional,” said Alan Simmons, president, Alan Simmons Art + Design. “His custom art work is lauded by those in his industry and related fields, including architects and interior designers.”

“We are thrilled to be presenting David’s inaugural show in a gallery setting,” Simmons added.
