January Open House

I’ll be having an open house at my home/studio in January (this will be instead of the shows I’ve held in Maple Grove in the past). I’ll have plenty of new work on display and lots of time to talk about my art. So please put these dates into your calendars: January 23rd and 24th, 2016 from noon to 7pm both days. I’ll also be mailing invites for the open house near the end of the year to those of you that I have addresses for, and sending email invites to those on my email list.

To be added to my email list and receive an invite to the open house, use the contact form and request an invitation.

Fall Art Fairs

Hey Everyone,

I’m participating in two upcoming art fairs and I wanted to invite everyone to stop by and check out my artwork.
This Saturday, September 19th, from 9am to 6pm, I’ll be participating in Excelsior Apple Day, which is an arts festival in downtown Excelsior, MN. Info on that can be found here: www.excelsior-lakeminnetonkachamber.com/apple-day.html.
Then, on October 10th and 11th, I’ll be in the Red Wing Fall Festival of the Arts; info on that event can be found here: www.redwingartsassociation.org/fall-festival/.

If anyone has any questions, just let me know.




Motion + Balance + Flame

For a recent submission for the Curse the Darkness show in NYC, I designed this new type of candle mobile. It holds small candles at the end of each arm, and features a gimbal mechanism that I employed to keep the candles level as their mass changes while burning. I’m pleased with how it turned out, and hopefully the selection committee at the American Design Club and Roll & Hill is interested. Regardless, this style of mobile is now in the repertoire!

Proposal submitted for art at the new Vikings Stadium

I just submitted my proposal for art at the new Viking stadium. The proposal included several examples of how my hanging mobiles could work in the new stadium, as well as a special kinetic sculpture based on the Vikings Horns logo. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge Vikings fan, so hopefully they are interested! Looks like they’ll be deciding sometime in June. The call for artist’s can be found here.

Wish me Luck!

New Website!

Welcome to the new website!

I finally found that perfect website solution that I was searching for!

I’m very pleased so far and I sure hope you’ll let me know what you think. I’ll be working on uploading all my content for a while, so please excuse the dust while the site is being constructed. The online store is on its way, but I’m always available to take orders by email for anything you see on the site.

If you have any questions, check out the contact page or email me at davidpmontague@gmail.com. I look forward to your feedback and suggestions, and thanks for visiting my website!
