Artists’ Group Monthly Show: November 2021

Artist of the Month: Joel Nickel “The Joy of Color.”

Joel Nickel is our artist of the month for November. The title of his exhibition is “The Joy of Color.” Joel explains, “Color can brighten any environment and stimulate the visual sense to uplift the spirit. Such is the goal of my paintings and enamel work, trying especially to counter the drab context of Covid with its restrictions on inter-personal associations and physical wariness.” When he designs and paints he is very conscious of the color wheel — the tension created by juxtaposing primary and secondary colors and the push-pull movement of light and dark areas. “I love circles mixed together with triangles and squares, broken up by diagonals and jabs of light. The circles could be rolling balls moved by gravity or simply a juggling act of celestial bodies in orbit.” Joel classifies his work as abstract geometric or simply AbGeo.

An artist reception will be held for Joel on November 21st at 6:00pm after the Jazz Vespers Service.
