What can you say about a man who you knew for only a year, but continues to cross your mind nearly every day since he died? He was memorable? He was inspirational? He was kind, generous of spirit, so very talented? Dan was all these things and more. Dan, along with his friends Jim Cotts and Brandon Hallsted, booked a show here at CAVU Cellars in May of 2015. They called their show “Art Collision: 3 Artists, 3 Perspectives.” And what an exciting show it was. What was really special was how Dan would drop into the winery several times a week during the show to talk about his art with our customers. People loved talking to him about his work. We loved having him. He is sorely missed.
Many of Dan’s paintings were sold or gifted prior to and following his death May 13, 2016. This Memorial Art Show will feature his remaining paintings. Proceeds from sales will be donated to ArtWalla.
