Trinity Health System has commissioned a set of paintings by local artist Dave Barnhouse. Dave Barnhouse is a self-described “country boy” from Richmond, Ohio who grew up in small towns and has no intention of leaving that environment either physically or emotionally. “I want my art to make people feel as if they were back home on a Friday evening, so they can experience the warmth of a cozy fire and smell the homemade bread and cookies coming from the oven,” he says.
Dave Barnhouse paintings have earned many awards and honors. For several years, he was voted as one of America’s “Most Popular Print Artists” in annual art dealer surveys that were conducted by USArt magazine. In 1995 and 1996, he was actually voted the “Third Most Popular Artist” in that same survey. Dave was also included in InformArt’s “Top Ten Hottest New Artists” list in 1995 and moved into the number three position in 1996. He has been featured in numerous newspaper and magazine articles and his prints and paintings are collected across the United States and Internationally.
The unveiling ceremony will take place in the Gill Lobby at Trinity Medical Center West at 3:00pm Monday, September 9, 2013.
