New Work for a New Gallery

I am pleased to announce that some of my new work is moving West to Park City, Utah. The Meyer Gallery, established in 1965 in Park City and located in the former First Bank of Utah Building, will be receiving this week nine works in my Running Stitch series. Here are a few of them. (Click on the image to get a bigger view.)

Mario's Song, 2012, mixed media (including pieces from record albums) plus tacks and
encaustic on panel, 14" x 14" x 1.5"

Carmen's Eyes, same description and size as above.

You can see that I really got into the naming from record albums thing. Of course these works also include book parts, painted paper and cardboard, treated metal and who knows what-all.

Artur's Ivories, 2012, mixed media with tacks and encaustic on panel, 12" x 12"

Nicholas's Stories, 2012, materials same as above, also 12" x 12"

I am also sending some larger works that I have shown in this blog previously, and here are a couple more:

Rubbery Stripes, 2012, painted paper and cardboard, rubber, treated metal,
book parts,pieces from record albums, tacks and
encaustic on panel, 24" x 24" x 1.5"

Divided Stripes, 2012, painted paper and cardboard, rubber, treated metal,
book parts,tacks and encaustic on panel, 24" x 24" x 1.5"

That last one may look familiar if you've been paying attention. I have reworked an older piece and made it brand new. Isn't that just what artists do?

So if your're out there in Utah for the summer activities such as hiking, swimming and other water sports, resorting at the three big resorts there, visiting or whatever, I hope you will stop by Meyer Gallery and take a look. Here's a link to Park City that tells about some of the attractions. You may know it as the site of the Sundance Film Festival and of major skiing and snowboarding activity. It's also home to the Kimball Art Center which will be constructing a major new building, as seen below:

The new Kimball Art Center, as designed by competition winners, Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG)

In case you can't quite imagine how this unusual structure would fit in, here's a rendering of the building in situ with the rest of Main Street:

I hope that my work will make a contribution to the other fine work shown by Meyer Gallery and that collectors will throng to purchase it - but of course!

Robyn Cole said...

Congratulations, Nancy! Park City is my second home (to Boquete, Panama) and I will be Christmasing there this year. Will your work still be up? I would SO love to see your work in person. Park City is becoming such a vibrant art community in addition to all its other attractions. I'm really glad you're becoming a part of it.

Thanks, everyone for your congratulations and good wishes.

Yes, Robyn, the work will be there at Christmas (or if not these pieces, then others) so I hope you will stop in to see it in person.

Congratulations, Nancy! Meyer Gallery is indeed lucky (and smart) to take on such a talented artist and such inspired work. I hope to drive through Park City this summer and take a look, as it's high time I see a 'Nancy Natale Original' in person!
