The Walter Art Gallery shows ‘Face and Form’ through Aug. 20

Posted

The Walter Art Gallery will present “Face and Form,” through Aug. 20, which is a solo show of works by David Amsellem, from Scottsdale, whose watercolors document the people he encounters in his daily life.

His main interest is painting the human form in the traditional style of transparent watercolor, according to a press release, noting that he has “been drawn to create on paper for as long as he can remember.”

He started with pencil on paper, then ink on paper and always had an interest in human form. Continuing drawing for years, until exploring figurative work in watercolor, he has been creating watercolor works for over 20 years, the release said.

Noting his formal training and career as a physical therapist, Amsellem has expert knowledge of human physiology, and is exposed to human challenges, emotions, and triumphs, the release said, describing his longtime observation of the human spirit and his love of art, which he combines to “convey the unique beauty of people in his figurative paintings.”

Amsellem has devoted many hours to honing his artistic techniques in workshops, demonstrations, critiques and collaborating with numerous experienced, notable watercolor artists, the release said. 

He has displayed his work and received awards in local, national and international shows in addition to signature membership with local, state, regional, and international watercolor societies.

The Walter Art Gallery , 6425 E. Thomas Road in Scottsdale,  hosted an artists’ reception for “Face and Form” on July 23. There is a video tour of the show on the gallery’s Facebook page, noted the release, adding small groups and individuals are hosted by appointment.
