David Dale

David Dale is well-known in East Central Indiana and beyond for his years as a designer of offices and homes, but now paints full time. David studied art a the Fort Wayne School and Museum and has taught in the Ball State University School of Fine Art.

Now living in Nashville, Indiana, Dale’s new work has been inspired by the southern Indiana landscape and the homestead he shares with his wife Cynthia, where a pond, a pine forest, speckled chickens, and barn provide scenes to compete with that other view: the hills an woods of Brown County. All are eloquently captured in the pastel strokes of the award-winning artist. “I work in the studio, but painting outdoors is my passion.” The artist works to balance the visual experience with the emotional one. “Each painting brings back memories of the day I painted it – the light and color, the smalls and sounds.”

Dale’s major exhibits include, “River Odyssey, Two Artists Follow the Wabash,” and “Oakhurst Gardnens through the Seasons.” He has received numerous awards in competitions, including those hosted by The Hoosier Salon, Indiana Heritage Arts, Richmond Art Museum, and Minnetrista.
