Opening reception will be held Friday, September 7, 2018 beginning at 6pm until 9pm with a brief artist talk at 7pm. View brand new works for Chad's first large-scale solo exhibition and meet the artist. Chad M. Olsen creates two separate worlds of formalist minimalist atmospheres and abstract landscape atmospheres. The creation of two aesthetics were inspired by Chad's love of nature, and more specifically growing up admiring the minimalist landscape of the Great Plains of Nebraska. Color, texture, painting surface and living light are the main variables that Chad is most interested in exploring within his painting. Chad M. Olsen was born April 25th, 1983, in Lincoln, Nebraska. He attended Lincoln Southeast High School and received a Bachelor of Fine Art from the Hinson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts in May 2010. While completing his BFA, Chad was fortunate to complete mentorships with prominent national artists Aaron Holz and Keith Jacobshagen. Chad's works will be on view through Saturday, October 13, 2018.
