David C Gallup (B. 1967 St. Louis, MO) is an avid outdoor oil painter. It was painting out of doors which led him to start meeting other artists with the same passion, and eventually he joined a newly revitalized group of artists who shared his love of working directly from life, the California Art Club. He quickly gained the respect of his peers and was recognized immediately as a natural leader in the group. The affiliation of 300 of the top fine artists in the state was quick to seize upon the young artist’s abilities both as a painter and a visionary, and within two years of joining, at the age of 34, he was asked to become the Vice President of one of the oldest and most respected art associations in the United States.
Gallup's first solo museum exhibition is housed at The Frederick R. Weisman Museum. "Nature's Masterpiece ~ California's Channel Islands" opens May 21, 2011 with over 70 paintings of the Channel Islands.

He received the California Art Club’s Gold Medal for Best Painting (as voted by the members of the California Art Club) for the painting “Twice Humbled” in the 99th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition in 2010 at the Pasadena Museum of California Art. "The Annual Gold Medal Juried Exhibition exemplifies the very best in traditional American art." says Jean Stern. Gallup currently serves as Vice-President of the club and is a member of their Board of Directors.
