||Beware at night. Creatures of dreams and nightmares will roam on November 13 at “Nocturnal.” This is Thumbprint Gallery’s next show featuring Scott Saw and Nick McPherson. These two artists have shown in some of the most prestigious galleries and museums in the western states, while attaining numerous awards and achievements.
Scott Saw creates vibrant, energetic paintings where dreams and current surroundings cross-pollinate with childhood memories and subconscious interpretations of the afterlife. His work entangles birth, life and death, while exploring relationships between physical and spiritual worlds. Saw's paintings are romanticized gothic landscapes of nature, misfits and oddities. The artist has shown in various venues and events, including the Oceanside Museum of Art, Sushi Performance Art Center, Infusion Gallery, and Comic Con in San Diego.
Like Saw, Nick McPherson’s art draws from worlds of the surreal and mysterious. However, the artist does not engage in any political or social commentary. His works “simply are what they appear to be,” according to his website. McPherson has exhibited works at venues and events including, The Artillery Show and Re:Up Gallery. He has also won numerous awards for design at various competitions at Texas Christian University, Texas State University, Advertising Club of Fort Worth, and the Art Director Club of Houston.
The opening reception at Thumbprint Gallery on November 13 will begin at 6pm and run until 10pm. The event is open to the public and there is no cover. Complimentary wine will be served.
