Dave Channon is a multi-media artist: sculptor, painter, videographer, printmaker and graphic designer. Channon’s most recent outsider art steel sculptures are animated with personality, humor and daring, dynamically imbalanced engineering. He began his career with an apprenticeship to Joseph Cornell at the age of 17, later collaborating with Red Grooms, Peter Max, Keith Haring, Phillip Guston, Ralph Fasanella, Andy Warhol, Ron English, Robert Indiana and many other important artists. His studio is just outside the hamlet of Phoenicia in the central Catskills.
Channon’s first exhibition was in 1979 at Franklin Furnace in lower Manhattan. His shows have been reviewed in the New York Times, the New Yorker, The Village Voice, Art in America, and New York magazine. Channon has exhibited at Westbeth Gallery in NYC, Collaborative Concepts sculpture show in Garrison NY, three Kingston Biennials, RHCAN in Red Hook, North Bennington Vermont, Stone Barns, a Rockefeller estate in Westchester, at 49A Sculpture Park at the Galli-Curci Mansion in Highmount and the Catskill Interpretive Center in Mt. Tremper.
