Jerald Melberg Gallery proudly presents an exhibition of new landscape paintings by veteran gallery artist, Thomas McNickle. This is the artist’s fifteenth solo exhibition with the gallery.
This new body of work centers on a picturesque pond near the artist’s home in western Pennsylvania Amish country. McNickle says: The core of this exhibition is a group of paintings of the pond and its wonderful reflective beauty. I have painted it in the crisp morning light, the heavy air of afternoon and the warm glow of evening. I have painted it in the spring, summer and fall. As I painted, I realized how completely suffused my aesthetic had become by this small, intimate place that nature had given me. It has been a most cathartic experience.
Thomas McNickle's exceptional technical ability has been evident since he first began painting in his teens. His work has been exhibited in over one hundred museum and gallery exhibitions and can be found in numerous collections including Butler Institute of American Art, Hoyt Art Center, Vero Beach Museum of Art, Kansas State University, Gibbes Museum of Art, The Mint Museum, and Morris Museum of Art.
