Photos from 2016 Castle Ashby art festival

We had a super time at the Castle Ashby art festival last weekend… attendance and sales were good, and people really responded enthusiastically to my abstract mixed media works.

Here’s what one visitor said: “I was blown away by your stand! My wife and I are planning a big redesign of the house this summer and would love to feature your work. A big ‘thank you’ to you and Ruth for exhibiting at Castle Ashby this year – we visit every year and this year was made special by discovering your work.”

Nice!

Nat & Ruth Coalson at Makers Mart 2013This weekend we hosted a stall at the Makers Mart, held at the Curve Theatre in Leicester. We had a great turnout (and good sales) with lots of people stopping by to say ‘hi’ and see my work on display. Thanks to everyone who attended, and especially our new collectors!

Join us for Abstract Art reception 14th November

Abstract Photograph: Waiting for Dawn by Nat CoalsonA work of abstract art invites the viewer to interpret the picture for themselves. Looking at abstract imagery can become very personal as the imagery triggers memories, inspires emotions and asks more questions than it answers. Our experiences, preferences and preconceptions come into play as the mind yearns to make logical sense of colours, shapes and textures that seem strangely familiar…yet somehow remain just beyond the grasp of true comprehension. The appreciation of an abstract work of art is enhanced through an awareness of feelings, rather than seeking to draw concrete conclusions.

This inspiring exhibit presents eighteen large-format abstract works on canvas by American artist Nat Coalson. Many of the works in this exhibit are being shown publicly for the first time.

You and your guests are invited to join us for the reception and private viewing. Please join us for an evening of fine art, canapés and drinks, laughter and friendship!

Photography Exhibition in Denver

I’m pleased to announce that my photography will be featured in a solo exhibition at the Denver Photo Art Gallery in the Arts District on Santa Fe. The show runs July 1 to August 25.

The exhibition is titled An Intimate Look at Nature and includes 15 photographs selected from my close-up nature collections, presented as large prints with contemporary finishes.

My artist statement for the show: “Nature is all around us, but much of its beauty goes unnoticed. Subtle textures, patterns, colors and shapes beg for a closer look. These photographs invite you to contemplate the simple yet sophisticated beauty of the natural world, and will impart peace and tranquility to your surroundings.”

The signature image for the show, titled Flow III (above right), is presented as a 40×40-inch fine art print on canvas. The image depicts the shallow water of a mountain stream, flowing over brightly colored pebbles. As a large print, this photo has great impact and fine detail.

Please join us for the opening reception Friday night, July 1. Additional openings are scheduled First Fridays and Third Fridays through July and August. All work is available for purchase during the receptions and regular business hours, or by appointment other times.

I’m excited and honored for the opportunity to show my photographic art in one of Denver’s premier galleries for photography.
