New Work Added to Live ARC Salon

March 30, 2017

We are pleased to announce that Snow Storm by Nicholas O’Leary has been added to the 12th International ARC Salon Exhibition.

"It was a grey wintry day. It had been raining for weeks and I was itching to get out of the studio. Stepping outside, the wind had eased off and there was no precipitate. I rode my bike up the mountain maintenance trail until the snow made it too sluggish. Continuing on foot, the fog had begun to billow around the mountain top, which promptly became sleet. I pegged my easel to the ground with tent pegs and duct taped an umbrella to it. However, the canvas and the palette still became damp, and needed to be constantly wiped so that the paint would transfer. A purple raincoat covered in paint was my outer shell, under which I had 2 thick woolen jerseys and a woolen singlet. I did star-jumps (jumping-jacks) every 10 minutes or so to generate some heat. As the painting neared completion, a deafening roar of thunder blasted through the swirling clouds of sleet. After crouching some distance away for a few minutes I rushed to my steel easel/umbrella contraption, collected my gear from the mountain top and moved on."- Nicholas O'Leary
