The body of work being presented represents Nicholas’ continued search for the divine and transcendent that lives in each of us. Pitted against a worldly backdrop where all too often emphasis is placed upon the tragedies which humans purposely inflict on one another, as individuals, nations and or organizations, his hope is to find that which elevates and inspires. Through a haunting dark beauty he hopes to find the song of the soul that resides in his self as well as the viewer. By distorting the figure Nicholas hopes to transform the work beyond mere representation of a particular person to a symbolic and allegorical narrative for the soul, it’s connection to the divine and it’s place within our worldly natures.
This body of work is born of charcoal, pastel, acrylic, watercolor, gold leaf, glitter and wax on board.
Opening reception: Saturday January 9th, 2016 from 7:00 to 10:00pm
Show runs through February 6th, 2016

Congratulations to two of our artists, Terri Myers Wentzka and Kristine Fretheim, for being selected as a part of Minnesota Monthly’s “Best New Art of 2016”.
Terri’s piece is called “Not Home” (graphite, charcoal, carbon, and pastel on Arnhem) “Not Home is part of a new series that explores the omnipresence of surveillance in our world, whether by corporations, government, the neighbors, and even the birds and animals that occupy our public spaces—they’re keeping an eye on us, too.”
Kristine’s piece is entitled “Delirious” (watercolor on Arches Hot Press) “Using forms in nature as design elements, I create intricate, abstract watercolors, imbuing my work with a sense of teeming energy and depth that draws the viewer ever further into the picture plane.”
