The Brandon Artists Guild is proud to present “Head in the Clouds”, the first solo show of works by abstract painter Dave Fifield. The exhibit will be up from May 4 – June 26, 2018. The public is invited to the opening reception Friday, May 4 from 5-7pm.

Dave is a native Vermonter and a graduate of the University of Vermont, where he studied audio art and philosophy. He became interested in abstract art almost as soon as he started taking courses.

Dave says, “I am fascinated by the infinite possibilities of abstract art. I almost feel like it’s more about discovery than creation. Not knowing how a particular painting is going to resolve is what is exciting about it. There is a freedom and wonder to the process that can be very satisfying. “Head in the clouds” felt like a good phrase to encapsulate the work. It describes the work in several ways. First of all, some of the paintings look cloudy, as if peering out of an airplane window, seeing through the mist to discover unknown landscapes. It also describes where I like to be mentally when I’m painting, in the clouds, so to speak, where imagination is least restricted. I often find myself looking at cloud formations, which can be quite interesting, and they seem to just happen without obvious structure or planning. That’s a metaphor for how I like to work.”


This exhibit is part of Vermont Arts 2018 – a year-long celebration highlighting arts events across the state, sponsored by the Vermont Arts Council.

The Brandon Artists Guild is an artist-run organization comprised of 30+ exhibiting artists plus additional supporting members. A 501(c)3 nonprofit cultural organization, the BAG supports the arts in Vermont through exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations and educational programs.
