For over 30 years, David Dewey has regularly exhibited his extraordinary watercolor paintings in New York City, Maine and throughout the United States in many solo and group exhibitions. His work is included in a number of major museums and in public and private collections. He has had a long and successful teaching career, having taught at Parson’s School of Design, The National Academy of Design School, and Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts. In 2008 after 15 years on the faculty, David was named Professor Emeritus at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts. In the same year he was appointed curator of the painting estate of Joseph A. Fiore, NA (1925-2008). He continues to conduct his popular workshops in New York, Maine, New England, and will continue his European workshop tours in the near future.
His comprehensive book on the watercolor medium titled, The Watercolor Book, Watson-Guptill Publications, has been a must-have book for serious watercolor painters and educators since its publication in 1995.
Dewey is currently represented by Bernarducci-Meisel Gallery in NYC, and in Maine by Caldbeck Gallery. He and his wife Kathy divide their time between their homes in Blairstown, New Jersey and Owl’s Head, Maine.
