New Artwork – New Exhibit

img_20200520_140116595This is a small sample of my solo Divergent Impulses at Calloway Fine Art & Consulting in Washington, DC, available online through June 5.  All new and exciting figurative work out of my imagination. Most of the 15 paintings featured in the show are 36×48 canvases. I think they make any room in the home or office more interesting.

Curve Gallery Maryland Federation of Art

OrangeFigure_60x36_acryliconcanvas - Copy

This orange figure is 60×36 inches, acrylic and house paint on canvas by Washington, DC-artist Leslie M. Nolan

Very honored to be juried into the Spring Exhibit of the prestigious Maryland Federation of Art in Annapolis.  Originally planned for the Circle Gallery, the coronavirus pandemic has caused the exhibit to be online at the organization’s virtual Curve Gallery.  Check it out at http://www.mdfedart.com.

A big thanks to juror Paul Reuther, artist and teacher at Montgomery College in Rockville, MD.  He also teaches at the Corcoran School of Arts and Design at George Washington University in Washington, DC.  In addition, I want to highlight the terrific work of the talented staff of Maryland Federation of Art for their considerable efforts during this difficult period.

The exhibit is available online through May 30 and this piece is for sale.

 

Current Art Fair – Gerard

Washington DC Artist Leslie Nolan Gerard, 40″x30″

I like the way this painting tackles the feeling of a man perfectly adapted to his surroundings, fully at ease and intent on his business, dealing with whatever needs to be accomplished despite or because of the weather.  It exemplifies the spirit of individuals who are confident and capable — self-actualized.  Qualities I greatly admire.

I’m honored to be representing Calloway Fine Arts & Consulting with this painting and one other (see the previous post) at the Current Art Fair in Richmond, VA.  The fair runs from October 24-27 — a perfect drive during Fall.  These exciting contemporary artworks would look terrific in any space.  For more information:  http://www.currentartfair.com

Just completed this fun painting.  I love the feeling of it. The model exudes confidence and has the aura of a risk taker who can be relied upon without fail.  Part of my new Arctic series, this artwork captures the dichotomy between isolation and camaraderie, which is also the essence of adventure in the North, and of being at ease in one’s surroundings.

Sylvie

Sylvie, 48×36 painting on canvas by Leslie Nolan, Washington, DC artist

Proud to display Sylvie, above, in the studio after this summer’s exhibition at CATO Institute’s “Freedom: Art as the Messenger” in Washington, DC.  Bold, stark, and arresting, Sylvie commands attention in a thoughtful way, open to many and varied interpretation.  While minimal in execution, it’s packed with potential in terms of content.  It looks great on any wall.  Contact me for purchase. Cheers

Raul, painting on canvas, by Washington DC artist Leslie M. Nolan

Just completed and available in the studio.  Sized 36×36 inches, Raul appears enigmatic with eyes that have much to say if only we could interpret them.  This kind of painting thrills me with its ambiguity and arresting quality.  It makes one think.  It’s not just pretty wallpaper.
