Artlofts Flash Show One Night Only! Artlofts presents Nathan Beard as the first artist to be invited to participate in Art Loft’s experimental “Flash Show” concept. Nathan will present a selection of paintings produced during the last year. His approach is multifaceted, ranging from a loose realism to nonobjective abstraction. His work is an inquiry into the selective nature of the human memory. He ties these approaches together with a focus upon bold color, energetic gesture and/or the use of tape and rubbing alcohol as a resist. Come on up and meet Nathan, enjoy the show and visit the Artlofts artists in their working studio. Show is free and one night only.
