From the curator: This year leading off the gallery season at the West Kortright Centre, I am extremely happy to say will be Joan Nelson, who is both a local resident, and an artist with significant national and international recognition, whose work is included in the collections of major museums and private collectors. The show will include a series of her masterful, invented landscapes, of a time that never was or has has yet to be, the work she is best known for, painted on panels, in extreme detail, in a variety of media, imagery that harkens to a wide breadth of an art historical past, ranging from the Hudson River School, the back corners of early Italian painting, later Flemish painting, mixed with fantastical visions of an alternate parallel plane, and so much more.
