Opening Reception – Sky Above
May 23, 2019
Art Gym Denver is thrilled to exhibit Sky Above by Marilyn Rea Nasky in the Common Space Gallery with an opening reception May 23 from 5 – 8PM
After returning here to her home state of Colorado, painter Marilyn Rea Nasky was overwhelmed by the beauty of the aspens, which she has missed terribly while living in Texas. When packing for the move, she only had space to pack watercolors. When talking about the motivation for the series, she said “I always told myself that if I ever moved back, [to Colorado] I would paint the aspens. They don’t have aspens in Texas.” Not letting the lack of medium options stop her, she set out to create an experimental series exploring her love of aspens. In her artist statement, Nasky explains “watercolor was ‘my first love’, but I had purchased the new Golden QoR grounds and pigments and began a two-year investigation of application techniques on paper and canvas.” The result of this two-year investigation is Sky Above, a series of paintings showing a view of the sky through Colorado’s beloved aspens trees.
