We had a super time at the Castle Ashby art festival last weekend… attendance and sales were good, and people really responded enthusiastically to my abstract mixed media works.
Here’s what one visitor said: “I was blown away by your stand! My wife and I are planning a big redesign of the house this summer and would love to feature your work. A big ‘thank you’ to you and Ruth for exhibiting at Castle Ashby this year – we visit every year and this year was made special by discovering your work.”
Ruth and I had a great time at the opening reception for my abstract art show at the Brick Lane Gallery in London! Thanks to everyone who came out to see the show, and thanks to Lucy and her associates at Brick Lane for putting on a fantastic exhibition.
On 13th November, 2014 we hosted the opening reception for my exhibition Anima Astratto: Journey Into Perception at the St James Hotel, Nottingham. The turnout was fantastic and we all had a great time looking at and talking about the art. Below are photos from the event.
This weekend we hosted a stall at the Makers Mart, held at the Curve Theatre in Leicester. We had a great turnout (and good sales) with lots of people stopping by to say ‘hi’ and see my work on display. Thanks to everyone who attended, and especially our new collectors!
A work of abstract art invites the viewer to interpret the picture for themselves. Looking at abstract imagery can become very personal as the imagery triggers memories, inspires emotions and asks more questions than it answers. Our experiences, preferences and preconceptions come into play as the mind yearns to make logical sense of colours, shapes and textures that seem strangely familiar…yet somehow remain just beyond the grasp of true comprehension. The appreciation of an abstract work of art is enhanced through an awareness of feelings, rather than seeking to draw concrete conclusions.
This inspiring exhibit presents eighteen large-format abstract works on canvas by American artist Nat Coalson. Many of the works in this exhibit are being shown publicly for the first time.
During November 2013, we’re presenting a solo exhibition of Nat’s abstract, mixed media works in Leicester, England. The exhibit will be held over a period of two weeks, commencing with a reception at the historic Belmont Hotel in Leicester on Saturday 9th November. Then, beginning Tuesday 12th November, the show will hang at the Pedestrian Gallery in Leicester’s Cultural Quarter. The exhibit concludes Monday 25th November.
Save the Date! We’re hosting an art show and reception at The Belmont Hotel in Leicester, England the evening of Saturday, November 9, 2013. Nat will present nearly two dozen of his original fine art works, most of which are being exhibited publicly for the first time. The main feature of the show is a collection of abstract, Limited Original works on canvas, hand-embellished with clear acrylic paint. You simply must see these unique, mixed media pieces in person to fully appreciate the incredible texture and depth of these signature works. Nat will also give an artist talk about his innovative creative process. We’re finalizing details and will be sending invitations in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
I’m pleased to announce that my photography will be featured in a solo exhibition at the Denver Photo Art Gallery in the Arts District on Santa Fe. The show runs July 1 to August 25.
The exhibition is titled An Intimate Look at Nature and includes 15 photographs selected from my close-up nature collections, presented as large prints with contemporary finishes.
My artist statement for the show: “Nature is all around us, but much of its beauty goes unnoticed. Subtle textures, patterns, colors and shapes beg for a closer look. These photographs invite you to contemplate the simple yet sophisticated beauty of the natural world, and will impart peace and tranquility to your surroundings.”
The signature image for the show, titled Flow III (above right), is presented as a 40×40-inch fine art print on canvas. The image depicts the shallow water of a mountain stream, flowing over brightly colored pebbles. As a large print, this photo has great impact and fine detail.
Please join us for the opening reception Friday night, July 1. Additional openings are scheduled First Fridays and Third Fridays through July and August. All work is available for purchase during the receptions and regular business hours, or by appointment other times.
I’m excited and honored for the opportunity to show my photographic art in one of Denver’s premier galleries for photography.
