American painter David George, whose bright canvases explore expressions of freedom, nature, and the social world, will be on view at The Gallery at the University of Bridgeport Arnold Bernhard Center from October 28 through November 19.

The Gallery is located at 84 Iranistan Avenue, Bridgeport, and is open from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Admission is free.

Featuring 30 works, the show reveals the full range of Mr. George’s use of light, color and textural contrast to explore the inner- and external realities of his subjects, from the isolation of modern-day man to human longing of a woman yearning for dignity.

“Painting,” explains George, “feels like I am conducting an orchestra with tones of color instead of instruments.”
