Banjie Getsinger Nicholas exhibiting in "for the birds..." Clement Gallery, Troy, NY

Egg tempera and silverpoint artist Banjie Getsinger Nicholas is featured in a group exhibition titled "for the birds..." at the Clement Gallery in Troy, NY from August 27 to September 25.  Also exhibiting are Spring Hofeldt, Chris Murray, Jon Gernon, and Randi Martin-Kish.

Nicholas' work is bird-inspired, and often bird-derived (egg tempera is an ancient, natural, incredible painting medium, and she deftly makes her own paints.) Her work is very detailed--there's a sort of magical realism to her paintings. The birds, animals, and objects might resemble the familiar, but they are combined in a way that is very Banjie.

The Clement Gallery is located at 201 Broadway at Monument Square, Troy, NY Opening reception Friday August 27, 6-9 pm.
