UNDER THE SAME SKY:
wORKS BY SARAH NELSON
“We all live under the same sky, but we don’t all see the same light.” – Unknown
Claire Elizabeth Gallery is pleased to a selection of paintings by Sarah Nelson, Apr. 6 – May 21, 2018 with an artist reception on Saturday, Apr. 14th from 6-9pm. The exhibition titled Under the Same Sky is a painter’s journey through landscapes, cityscapes and the omnipresent shared sky.
The pink glow of the sun setting over a horizon to the dark clouds rolling over a city street, our visions are awash with the sky and its colors. A native of Martha’s Vineyard, Sarah Nelson has been surrounded with nature and its changing hues. When Nelson’s journey brought her to her second home of New Orleans, her work began to capture some of the magnetism of the bayous, tree canopies and city skylines that comprise the Crescent City and its surrounding areas.
Under the Same Sky is an exhibition of color, energy and the beauty of the horizon captured by Nelson. Paintings on display include scenes from the verdant swampy South to the pastoral scenes of her native Northeast. The constant thread of Nelson’s work is first and foremost the transcendent allure of nature in its richest hues. Claire Elizabeth Gallery invites viewers to experience their own visual experience of color and light - Under the Same Sky.
