Upcoming Group Exhibitions
January 29, 2017

I am pleased to announce three upcoming regional group exhibitions: SARTQ’s Red at the Palmetto Art Center in Palmetto, Fantastic Ekphrastic at Soft Water Studios in St. Pete, and Organic Geometry at the newly formed mchapel projects in Sarasota.

Each show presents all new work, including the 20th painting in my Zuhanden series for SARTQ’s Red, opening next week at the Palmetto Art Center. Organic Geometry is a 4-person show at Sarasota’s newest contemporary art space, mchapel projects, and will include newly enlarged works from my Assent series as well as the the debut of a new (functional) series. I am also thrilled to be part of this year’s Fantastic Ekphrastic at Soft Water Studios in St. Pete where Zuhanden 14 has been studied and interpreted by philosopher and poet Sabrina Dalla Valle. Her writing, along with that of 15 other visual artist/author combinations, will be shown/performed live by local performers.

Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions or need more details. If you are unable to attend a show, I am happy to arrange a private studio visit. For more information about me or to see my full portfolio, visit lainenixon.com or learn more about my process on instagram.
