'LUSTRARE' AT FRIESENA SOLO EXHIBITION BY ARTIST NICOLE CHESNEY1 December 2016
This December, Friesen Gallery embarks on its thirtieth year, an anniversary traditionally represented by the pearl. To mark the occasion the Gallery will showcase an exceptional new body of work entitled 'Lustrare' from artist Nicole Chesney. Widely recognized for her oil paintings on etched, mirrored glass, Chesney acts with mastery, using the properties of light and reflection to cultivate a sense of seductive mystery and profound beauty. In addition to her site-specific large-scale commissions for 7 World Trade Center in New York City and Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, Chesney’s paintings are exhibited and collected internationally. Awards received by this impressive artist include the UrbanGlass Award for New Talent, The Corning Museum of Glass Rakow Commission and a Jutta Cuny-Franz Foundation Supporting Award. 'Lustrare' is a luminous celebration of this milestone in Friesen’s history.
