Sparks Gallery is pleased to announce a new solo show featuring San Diego artist Duke Windsor. The exhibition features a new collection of Windsor’s work focusing on the power of gold leaf to evoke a feeling of wanderlust, ambling through the back streets of local San Diego neighborhoods.

 

Duke Windsor served in the U.S. Marine Corps as a radio operator, combat illustrator and drill instructor. After leaving the service, Windsor was a freelance illustrator and amateur rodeo cowboy, competing in bull-riding, bareback and steer wrestling events. He subsequently studied classical voice at San Diego State University and performed professionally with the San Diego Opera Chorus. Windsor holds the rank of 4th Degree Black Belt in Kempo martial arts, and he continues to be an active singer-songwriter, guitar player and solo performer.

 

Duke is currently an instructor of drawing and painting at Art on 30th Street; he also offers a wide range of artist development workshops throughout San Diego County. Windsor has extensive experience in museum exhibition design and installation experience, and has worked in across San Diego in various museums and cultural centers.
