Artist David John Rush brings “An Introspective” to the Palmer Museum at the Springfield Public Library

With 50 plus years of artistic accomplishments “An Introspective” totally defines artist David John Rush’s universe.  When asked about his theme, “An Introspective”  for the upcoming exhibit at Springfield Public Library’s,  Donald B. Palmer Museum,  Rush replied:  “I was always a pensive, contemplative person- even as a kid I never missed anything in my path.   I would study, analyze, question and observe things most people would walk by.   When I paint, it’s first a thought- process.  That’s where introspection comes in.   Each painting has a different idea behind it, something I’ve scrutinized or reflected on.  The painting is then created and brought to fruition.”   Indeed, Mr. Rush’s Oils and Watercolors are not only rich in color, but in concept and vision as well.  His still life and landscapes are carefully thought out.   

An internationally-known artist, David Rush graduated from the Famous Artists School in Westport, Connecticut with a BFA from the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Art.  He holds a degree in Technical Vocational Occupations from the Maryland Institute College of Art and is a New Jersey certified teacher.  He was an instructor at the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Art, Head of the Graphic Design Department and Co-chair of Fine Art at Sussex County Community College and has taught at Montclair State University, Joe Kubert School of Cartooning and Graphic Design and William Paterson University.   His work has been exhibited at numerous museums, including the Newark Museum, Larry Aldridge Museum, Tredwell Museum in New York State, New Jersey State Museum, Philadelphia Museum, and the Bauhaus Museum and Archives in Berlin, Germany. Extremely popular, Mr. Rush has been invited to exhibit non-stop at various galleries, libraries and venues with future exhibits already being booked for 2014. Mr. Rush paints daily and is active in teaching and lecturing.
