For the third time, one of my art pieces has been accepted to appear in the annual Surreal Salon show at the Baton Rouge Gallery – Center for Contemporary Art. I’m so happy to have been selected out of more than 400 submissions this year.

The entry that was selected is The Egg (All Things Are Alive 29) shown below and found in my gallery here:  https://www.daviddavid.net/artwork/the-egg-all-things-are-alive-29/

This year’s judge is the amazingly talented Carrie Ann Baade who personally selected each work to be included in the exhibition.  

Baade is an American painter whose work quotes from, interacts with, and deeply relates to art history. Baade paints in dialogue with relevant masterpieces in order to reclaim them in a surreal narrative that is simultaneously biographical. Baade received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, studied at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy, and received her MFA from the University of Delaware. She works in Tallahassee, where she is a full Professor of Painting and Drawing at Florida State University. 

Since 2005, Baade has had more than 20 solo exhibitions at museums and other venues nationally and internationally. Her exhibits include: Mesa Contemporary Museum of Art (2018), the Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville (2012), the Delaware Contemporary (2007), La Luz de Jesus in Los Angeles (2018), and the Ningbo Art Museum in China (2007). Her works have also been exhibited at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, the Harwood Museum in Taos, the Instituto de America de Santa Fe in Granada in Spain, and the Centrum Promocji Kultury Warszawa Praga Południe in Poland.

I’m beyond thrilled to announce that one of my drawings was accepted into a prestigious art show. The gallery show is called Surreal Salon 10 hosted by the Baton Rouge Gallery – Center for Contemporary Art. I’m honored that Ron English, the amazing pop surrealist and billboard liberationist, was the judge who made the selection. Out of 600 submissions only 60 made it into the exhibit.

Check out the gallery show here. Opening night is a wild costume ball featuring awesome musical acts, tickets are still available.

The gallery has set up a store for all the art in the exhibit, and mine is here.

I’m honored to be shown with so many other great works.

Best-selling fantasy author Jeff VanderMeer, the author of Annihilation and Authority, rated my novel A Greater Monster 4 stars out of 5 on Goodreads. I thanked him on Twitter, and he said it was “…a really cool and unique read! Beautiful book, too, in the design.”

Jeff VanderMeer liked A Greater Monster

It was really quite a thrill for me to get this response because VanderMeer is one of my favorite authors. Here’s my review of Authority, book two in his Southern Reach trilogy.
