Painter David Ring exhibiting at North Forte Studio

David Ring isn't really a starving artist. He's a professional graphic artist who has dabbled with charcoal drawing and painting for most of his life.

But his exhibition, which is on display this month at North Forte Studio, is called The Starving Artist Show.

“I could have just as easily called it anything else,” Ring laughs. “There's no real reference to the show itself other than I would be starving if I had to rely on the fine arts to pay the bills.”

The show features Ring's oil paintings and charcoal drawings of landscapes as diverse as Killarney, Manitoulin Island, Cape Breton and Jasper.

It also features his depictions of everyday objects such as “lemons and teapots,” as well as models who have posed for the drawing circle at the Sudbury Art Gallery over the years.

To the keen observer, the subject of one of these portraits is clearly recognizable — local photographer Jorge Cueto.

An opening reception for The Starving Artist Show takes place from 1-3 p.m. May 3 at North Forte Studio, located at 122 Durham St., Suite 204.

“It's show and tell,” Ring said. “I hope people enjoy it.”

After the opening reception, people can drop by to view the exhibition from noon to 3 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday until May 25, or by appointment by phoning 705-675-8249.
