Composition is what drives the work of Darrell Davis. His journey in sculpture began after a visit to Brookgreen Gardens, Murrells inlet SC, as a teenager. After receiving a BFA from The University of Texas at Arlington he enrolled in the Graduate School of Architecture’s landscape architecture program. His work has been included in the National Sculpture Society’s Annual Exhibition, the Society of Animal Artists ‘Art and the Animal’ tour, the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum’s ‘Birds in Art’ tour, and in an exhibition at the National Geographical Society in Washington DC.
In 2013 Darrell was awarded the Gold Medal and Maurice B Hexter prize from the National Sculpture Society 80th Annual Exhibition held at the Tampa Museum of Art and Brookgreen Gardens.
