Fine artist Dave Martsolf will have an opening reception of “Recent Work and Earlier Surreal Oil Paintings” at the Parish Center for the Arts on Sunday, Jan. 6 from 1 to 4 p.m.  Martsolf is known for his detailed photorealistic surreal canvases, most recently displayed at a solo exhibition in May at Gallery Z in Lowell. Since then Martsolf has embarked on a sea change in both topic and style that now highlights his original sketch lines in both past and current drawings. The drawn line is now focused on dance-like movements that then give rise to visions of abstract objects that Martsolf brings to life with color and shading. Dave Martsolf obtained his bachelor of fine arts degree at the University of New Hampshire after a stint in the department of architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge.
