The Hermitage of Landscape: Works by Nicholas Coley

Tuesday, August 30th 2016 to Friday, December 9th 2016

The Hermitage of Landscape, the opening exhibit at the NEW Doug Adams Gallery (2465 LeConte Ave., Berkeley) will feature the luminous landscape paintings of Bay Area artist Nicholas Coley. Painting en plein aire, Coley experiments with light and shape, producing images that range from realism to abstraction. Familiar Bay Area sites – Mt. Tam, Baker Beach, Tennessee Valley, the Berkeley Hills – take on other-wordly qualities.

The exhibition runs from August 30 to December 9.

The artist will be present at the opening reception on September 6 at 5:00 pm to discuss his work. The reception will feature music by a duo from the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble.

The new Doug Adams Gallery is located at 2465 LeConte Avenue. For more information, visit
