Press release

Trailside Galleries is pleased to announce a showcase of new works by Nicholas Coleman.  "Life in the Rockies" will open on June 17 and continues through June 29.  For this event, Coleman  has produced a collection of studio paintings dedicated to both western  subjects as well as wildlife themes.

Brought up in an artistic home, Nicholas Coleman earned a BA in Fine Arts from Brigham Young University. Though the guidance of this father, renown painter and sculptor Michael Coleman, he has been painting and drawing for as long as he can remember.  Travels  across North America, Canada, Europe and even Africa have provided a steady stream of inspiration for his compositions.  These painting journeys have given him a deep  appreciation for the subtle details hidden in plain sight. While never formally trained, Coleman uses a traditional academic approach in his painting, inspired by masters of old to  guide his own career.

Coleman’s work has a degree of  spontaneity and a slight impressionistic feel that allow the  viewer to participate in the scenes he creates. He endeavors to create a connection between his paintings and the observer by invoking a mood that the viewer can walk into. He notes, “The work I am striving to produce, is a kind of preservation of a certain way of life. The West has always fascinated me. There are so many untold stories to tell!”

Nicholas Coleman’s work can be found in various private and corporate collections including the Anshutz Collection, Denver, Colorado,  the Bennington Center for the Arts, Bennington, Vermont, the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Wausau, Wisconsin,  George Lucas, Lucasfilm Ltd., Christopher Forbes, Forbes, New York, New York, Raymond James Financial Center, Tampa, Florida, the Adirondack Museum, Blue Mountain Lake, New York, Bass Pro Shops, Springfield , Missouri. and the Booth Western Art Museum, Cartersville, Georgia.
