Show to Showcase Inspiration of Land, Sky

"[Nicholas Coley] just completed his second artist residency in Healdsburg, most recently at Chalk Hill Artist Residency...Nicholas Coley’s paintings, reminiscent of that of painter Wolf Kahn, illuminate the canvas with his identifiable palette of soft greens, yellows, purples, and oranges. Working with a 2”-4” wide brush, his strokes of oil paint are bold and confident, while sensitive at the same time. Unlike most plein air painters, he works on large canvases, from 36 on up to 72 inches, which he brings out into the field, and sets up at the point of inspiration. Dodging wind, insects and ever-changing light, he completes his painting in one sitting, usually consisting of about six hours." -The Union
