EC Gallery Presents Daniel Merriam, “A World Apart”
Exclusive Collections art exhibit features original paintings and artist appearance by Daniel Merriam in San Diego, Laguna Beach, and Las Vegas.

SAN DIEGO (October 1, 2013)— Exclusive Collections Galleries (EC Galleries) hosts a one-man show for artist Daniel Merriam entitled “A World Apart” this October. This one-of-a-kind touring art show features an exhibit of rare original paintings created by the internationally-acclaimed artist. The gallery will provide complimentary wine and champagne for this free event.

Merriam’s paintings present a unique dreamlike world where anything is possible. He encourages viewers to let their minds take a journey their bodies cannot. Merriam discovered the serenity of entering “another world” as a young child, saying, “My favorite escape was climbing trees.[…] I ventured higher and higher, testing my faith as the branches grew progressively thinner. Once near the top, I perched precariously on a limb, braced against the trunk as it swayed in the wind. This was my own world, and from here I could see forever.”

Merriam’s precision in his work mixes with intuitive spontaneity. Each painting is a stage, each subject an actor, and the stories intertwine in an intricate fiction. Faces merge with inanimate objects, layers create dimensional illusions, and characters peer through the curtains beyond the frame of their existence. The story unfolds with each new painting that Merriam adds to the collection, and just as in a theatrical performance, the artist invites viewers to participate, transporting them to another time and place.

Continuously developing his talent, Merriam has indeed created a world for others to enter and enjoy, a place to journey again and again. Exclusive Collections invites you to take your own journey through Daniel Merriam’s latest exhibition “A World Apart,” which will be hosted this October at Exclusive Collections Galleries.
