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 is physically located in Center Sandwich, NH.  Sandwich is a wonderful New England village nestled between Lake Winnipesaukee, Squam Lake and the base of the White Mountains. 

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.

Surroundings is shutting its doors and will not be in business any longer.  Thank you for you support over the past 40 years the gallery has been in operation.
