Nicholas Serratore 2018 Pastoral pastel 14" xd 14"



Nicholas Serratore has been working in the pastel medium for over 25 years. During this time his technique and style have evolved from when he first started, “The more you work at it, the more you grow as an artist. The paintings are a direct result of that growth.” For this exhibition Serratore harnesses representations of the land to demonstrate the effects of sunlight and spatial depth upon a scene. His use of color and blending techniques create moody, atmospheric landscapes that frame almost-abstracted fields of saturated light and color. Several works showcased will reflect a new exploration of the artist’s evolvement.



Nicholas is a full-time artist and art instructor who works primarily in pastels. He holds degrees from the Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia and from Wilmington University. In the past decade he has had multiple solo exhibitions, participated in many charitable events, and won numerous awards for his pastel landscapes. He is a recipient of an Individual Fellowship Grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts and is a member of the Pastel Society of America in New York. His work hangs in the offices of Senator Tom Carper. He recently had three of his large-scale pastel paintings installed in the Delaware Public Archives State Building in Dover, DE as Artist in Residence.
