Around Town - The art of Dan Nelson @ Nicole's Studio and Art Gallery
First Friday Event Time: 6 pm-8:30 pm
Exhibition Dates: October 3-October 31
If there was one oil painter in North Carolina renowned for beautiful and unique interpretations of skylines, Dan Nelson stands apart. Anyone who has had the pleasure of watching Nelson paint live on the street or through his postings on FB, YouTube or the local TV news, can agree his creative process is amazing to observe. Dan paints on large canvases sized from 24x30 to 48x60 “en plein air”, meaning on location. This show is a must for anyone who loves Raleigh or calls this capitol city home.
