Artexpo New York City

Washington, DC’s Gallery NK has been representing me at special art fairs outside of town. I was one of a handful of their artists to exhibit at Artexpo New York City on pier 94.  Held during April 14-17, the event drew designers, collectors, and art enthusiasts.

I very much like the way Gallery NK displayed a selection of my new Corrected Vision paintings — all 36″x36″ acrylic on canvas.  Because the gallery boasts a collection of very talented, skilled, and innovative artists from around the world, I consider myself fortunate to be showcasing my own work with them.

In addition to myself, exhibiting artists included Steffen Faisst, Nihal Kececi (Gallery NK owner), Julia Hacker, Alfredo Palmero, Thomas Dodd.

My thanks to Nihal Kececi of Gallery NK for the support and expert assistance in exhibiting at these world class international fairs.

Just a reminder:

Susan Calloway Fine Arts represents me exclusively in the Washington, DC area. 

Located in the heart of Georgetown at 1643 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, DC, the Gallery graciously welcomes my exhibiting in other local venues from time to time for special exhibits.  She also has arranged for some artwork to be used temporarily by local decorators. 

Bottom line, you can see a number of my pieces right now at Susan Calloway’s.   And, many of the paintings on my website LeslieNolan.com and on this blog are available through Susan Calloway Fine Arts (gallery@callowayart.com).

Want to just say a few words about the wonderful work of the Washington Project for the Arts, the premier arts organization of the nation’s capital.  WPA sponsors workshops from art curators around the world to provide guidance and support to emerging and mid-career artists in this area.  And, it sponsors curated art exhibits throughout the District, including at its brand new street level gallery location in North Shaw, a block from Howard University, at 2124 H St NW.   It’s a significant contributor to the vibrant art scene of this area.

I was honored to participate in its biggest fund raising event, the Auction Gala, which took place a few weeks ago.

 

New York City With Gallery NK

DisSix

Dis Six by Washington, DC Contemporary Artist Leslie Nolan

Great news — My artwork will be heading to the Big Apple in April.  Yes, New York City for the huge show Art Expo with Gallery NK.    More on this exciting event as we get closer to spring.

Right now I’m getting used to the new studio space.  There is nothing like a pristine clean space and an untouched white canvas to give an artist pause.  It’s somewhat of a daunting prospect. New tarp on the floor, fresh plastic protecting recently drywalled areas, and the painting table formerly used to hold the computer is unmarked, too.  I started slowly with a small painting for a show this May for The Arts Club of Washington, and that allowed me to go farther and really christen the studio this week with spilled and dripped paint from a larger canvas.  The upshot — all feels back to normal and congenial to mark-making.

A great week exhibiting with Gallery NK, meeting friends, and checking out art museums, galleries, and fairs along with Art Basel.  Good to be home and to paint again…

It’s always exciting to participate in Miami’s sprawling and exciting Art Basel Week.  This will be my third year showing artwork there, and I want to thank Washington, DC’s Gallery NK for featuring my artwork and providing this great opportunity in Miami.  In particular, Owner and Director Nihal Kececi  has been tremendously helpful and supportive.

Gallery NK will be displaying four artworks in my Corrected Vision series — all newly completed in the past 6 months.

Washington, DC artists are always well-received and omnipresent throughout Miami during the week.  Some twenty art fairs, several art museums and tons of galleries, individual artists, and arts aficionados crowd the streets, sidewalks, and beaches.  It is really something!   Honored to be rubbing shoulders with so many art fans and talented artists.

As a reminder, I remain represented at Washington, DC by Susan Calloway Fine Arts in historic Georgetown.

Check out this cool video of my solo exhibit, “Mixed Messages” at The Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center in Frederick, MD.  Great venue, great staff, great volunteers.  I am so honored to have been selected for a solo exhibit at this fabulous institution dedicated to the arts. The exhibit features ten paintings — all big heads.

Videographer George L. Miller collaborated with me on this film and I want to thank him for all his suggestions and for his keen professionalism.
