Don Nice: A Twenty Year Survey
October 13 – November 10
Thirty-six paintings in acrylic and oil will survey a twenty-year span in the career of Don Nice. One of America’s foremost realists, Nice's work is characterized by his monumental treatment of still-life subjects. The combination of realistic iconography of the present with classical and primitive motifs suggest parallels with the alter pieces of the Renaissance.
The exhibition was organized by the Fine Arts Museum of Long Island and made possible in part by contributions from the Nassau County Office of Cultural Development, the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York State Council on the Arts and the Fred Jones Jr. Memorial Endowment Fund.
