David Maxim: Natural Force

December 2, 2005 – February 22, 2006

Perkins Gallery

Between 2002 and 2004, Robert and Patricia Maxim donated to our collection three dozen original drawings by California artist David Maxim. Some were studies for larger paintings, and some were exercises in visualization, but all of them are wonderful pieces of art.

Maxim is a San Francisco based artist whose work deals with mythical characters and forces. The Polk Museum of Art has an extraordinary collection of his dynamic works on paper in addition to two major sculptural paintings. Maxim will talk about his work at a pre-reception lecture in the Museum’s auditorium on Friday, December 9 at 6:00pm.
