Landscape Paintings of Daniel Springer at Salt Pond Visitor Center
Contact: Sue Haley, District Interpreter, 508-255-3421
Beginning on Saturday, March 2 and through the end of the month, painter and educator, Daniel Springer will present a solo show of his en plein air and studio depictions of various national seashore locations. This exhibit will be at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham. Mr. Springer's work reflects the struggle between the intrusion of humanity and the harmony of nature. It is an expression of his love of solitude and his search for solace. A graduate of Parsons School of Design and Northeastern University, Springer currently chairs the Fine Arts Program at Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School and was named the "Arts Educator of the Year" in 2010 by the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod. "Viewing these beautiful paintings of national seashore landscapes in various seasons and moods is a perfect antidote to the winter doldrums," said South District interpretive ranger Sue Haley.
