The Dane G. Hansen Museum is pleased to present Recollections of Nature, a solo exhibition of paintings by landscape painter of the West, David Vollbracht. Vollbracht works primarily in oils and has a special fondness for prairie and mountain scenes. A strong representational painter that incorporates some impressionistic techniques, Vollbracht’s goal is to communicate the emotion he felt at the scene in his paintings. He allows himself artistic liberties in directing compositional flow, so he can draw viewers in and guide them completely through the work. David is most captivated by light; especially by the patterns and shapes natural light creates in the outdoors. He is a studio and plein air painter and his paintings are usually completed by incorporating a combination of both work settings. The Hansen Museum is delighted to host this Kansas artist’s solo exhibition from June 1 – July 15, 2018. Vollbracht, a Signature Member of Oil Painters of America, has shown his work in numerous shows including: Mountain Oyster Club Show, Tucson, AZ; One Man Show Wichita Center for the Arts, Wichita, KS; National Miniature Show, La Luz, NM; Rocky Mountain Plein Air Show, Winter Park, CO; and National Oil Painters of America Exhibitions. Vollbracht currently resides in Medicine Lodge, Kansas.
