Nisus Gallery is pleased to present Reclaiming, a show of all new works by Nick Baxter. This series of paintings illustrate the recovery of a physical and spiritual connection to the living world. This connection not only supports our existence, but comprises our very bodies and consciousness. Baxter’s technical style, which merges the classic trompe l’œil aesthetic with allegorical themes, lets viewers witness this process of reclamation.

With the occasion of an upcoming holiday celebrating this grand country of ours, here's a must-see video shedding light on some of the overlooked aspects of the "American Dream" and how our current way of life is affecting the planet.  May our celebrations and pride not be without awareness and understanding of what's really happening in the world today.
