July in the Main Gallery:   Dan Nelson Paints the Town

First Friday, July 3rd

paintings by Dan Nelson


After Dan Nelson paints your town, you’ll never see it the same way again. His hundreds of cityscapes make it clear that he has a special way of capturing the beautiful hamlets and cities of North America.

Dan typically spends a week in town – producing oil and acrylic paintings, watercolor sketches, and a video montage. He loves chatting with onlookers, residents, tourists, and fellow artists while he works. “I do my best painting when I am mildly distracted,” Dan quips, ” And I love watching people’s faces light up when they see – sometimes for the first time – how beautiful their hometown is.

July’s show at 311 will be the largest collection of Dan’s paintings ever shown in one place at the same time.

So look for a big umbrella, a big easel, some sweet jazz tunes and a bunch of smiling faces. Dan Nelson is painting your town. You’ll never see it the same way again.
