"Silver Linings: Literal/Metaphorical" is a new show of egg tempera paintings and silverpoint drawings by Banjie Getsinger Nicholas from Whitson Gallery & The Brick Wall Exhibition Space at UCONN Torrington, Feb. 27 - May 11, 2012. Nicholas is an accomplished artist and teacher who works with remarkable materials and subject matter.

From the gallery website:
"The mediums used by artist Banjie Getsinger Nicholas, egg tempera and silverpoint, are two of the oldest mediums used by artists through the centuries. [...] These materials are little changed from those used by the old masters centuries ago. Banjie says, “Their ‘organic’ nature adds to the pleasure of the process for me. Through these paintings and drawings I maintain my personal connection to the natural world and hope some of the reverence I feel will connect with viewers of the work.”

There is an artist's talk and reception on Thursday March 1, 2012 - 7 - 8:30 pm.

Nicholas has recently written an instruction book on silverpoint drawing that was published in February, 2012.
