David’s work had been displayed in Surroundings Art Gallery for many years.  His work provided a unique aspect to the gallery which was primarily focused on landscape paintings by locally connected artists.  We dedicated this website to his work.

The gallery was physically located in Center Sandwich, NH from 1980 until 2014.  Sandwich is a wonderful New England village nestled between Lake Winnipesaukee, Squam Lake and the base of the White Mountains. The physical gallery closed its doors in December 2014, but remains as a web based art gallery.  In addition, a number of paintings by gallery artists are located in venues around the lakes region to include the Corner House Inn in Sandwich. 

Our gallery specializes in original fine art produced by extremely talented locally connected artists. You will see works in a variety of mediums (oil, watercolor. pastels, acrylics, glass, wood, etc.). We have beautiful folk art painted on many backgrounds: canvas, barrel staves, sap buckets, furniture and other objects. On the “Artists and Art” pages, you can take a tour of the artists’ work.

We are proud to bring such a high caliber of art to you. Let us know what art you desire and we will do our best to find the right piece for you. We can set up commissioned work with many of the artists if you are looking for something special. We would love to hear from you, so please email or call us with your ideas and comments.
