Long regarded as one of Wisconsin’s most admired and singularly dedicated painters, especially by fellow artists, David Niec presents his most poetically evocative, complex and impressive body of works yet in this exhibition. His new paintings, several of them grand in scale and all of them nocturnes, are chartings of the moon’s movement over vast bodies of water. Each of the works was produced en situ during one or another of twenty-seven full nights that the artists spent camping in remote and lonely areas alongside the shorelines of the east and west sides of Lake Michigan and Lake Winnebago. As is true with most of the works Niec has produced in recent years, his new works were created with a single constant collaborator, the night itself. Exhibition runs July 24 through September 12.
