Current Exhibit: Chicago to Italy and Back by Artist, Nicholas Pesa.
From Nicholas Pesa:
"I am currently an art educator for Chicago Public Schools teaching Fine Art to elementary students on Chicago's South Side.I have taught the skills and appreciation of art since 2009. I live in the Lakeview neighborhood but grew up in the south suburbs. I earned a Bacherlo's in Fine Arts, in Painting, from Arizona State University and a Master's of Arts in Teaching form the Chool of the Art Institute of Chicago.
My art is most influenced by the French Impressionists and American Abstraction.I try to use the color theory of the Impressionists and the brush work of the Abstractionists when I am painting. My personal philosophy on art is to continually strive to create a style that is unique and to create a collection of paintings that reflect my personal experiences with a variety of landscapes, whether abroad or on my neighborhood block."
