Human Connection, an exhibition of sculptures, pastels, and drawings by Olga Nielsen, will be on view in the Mezzanine Gallery. A nationally recognized artist, Nielsen works in a classical realistic tradition of figurative art whether her medium is clay or pastel. She will exhibit three-dimensional sculpture and relief sculpture which has a flat background with images raising above it into space. To complement the sculpture, Nielsen will hang pastel and charcoal portraits on the surrounding walls.
The artist will host a free opening reception on Friday, September 6 from 5-7 PM. Nielsen is planning quick sketching sessions with a live model during the opening reception. Visitors are invited to bring their sketchbooks and pencils.
