Storage Closet Gallery Show: Nicholas Anthony Mancini: Works on Paper Location: Western Avenue Lofts, 160 Western Avenue, 2nd Floor Lowell, MA 01851 Dates: Open during Saturday Open Studios, noon to 5 pm, on November 4th, December 2nd, December 9th, January 6th, and by appointment. Storage Closet Gallery presents Works on Paper, recent etchings and silverpoint drawings by Nicholas Anthony Mancini, opening Saturday, November 4th, 2023, on view through January 2024. Mancini's images are composites sourced from 16th century tapestries and lived experiences in woods and gardens. Repeating horizontal lines, a device typically employed in printmaking to create depth, depict close-up views of anonymous, mysterious feet on sylvan ground. The work invites reflections of our relationship with nature, and new and old technologies. Drawn by hand with an etching needle, silver wire and a straight edge, the horizontal striated marks appear similar to digital scans while imparting the physical impact of a tapestry weft. Nicholas Anthony Mancini (Born Swampscott, MA) received his BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and his MFA from Boston University. Nicholas’ work encompasses painting, drawing and printmaking. He is currently the Visiting Assistant Professor in Painting at Massachusetts College of Art.
