The Emerald Arts Center is featuring a pair of local abstractionists, Nathan Nichols and Barbara Weinstein, through January in the Jaqua Gallery.
The show will feature colorful exuberant paintings in abstractions representing form and vision.
Nichols tries to interpret moments in time in an abstract way.
“I try to select colors for my work that will blend in with the seasons,” Nichols said “Hopefully the end result will be a fine piece of work, as original as possible.”
Nichols admits he stays very busy in the summer especially, preferring to work outside whenever possible.”
Weinstein is also heavily influenced by the outdoors, enjoying Plein Air painting, as well as painting from live models and portraiture. She has lately found a passion for abstraction in both acrylics and collages, creating bold and colorful abstract paintings and collages.
Weinstein holds a BA from Syracuse University in Fine Art and Art History, and has studied at Cooper Union and the Art Students League in New York City, as well as a degree in Health Education and Counseling Psychology.
Show dates are January 8th through February 1st, with opening reception during Second Friday Walk on January 11th from 5 – 8 pm.
January also includes an exhibit of works by Floyd Chandler and Sarah .. , a juried figure drawing show, and another eclectic display of works by EAC Member artists.
