This weekend, is debuting a new exhibition that is described as "an exploration of photography and fine art."
"The Urban Side of Light" is a joint exhibit featuring city- and street-inspired photography and paintings from two artists: Nathaniel Roberts and Maxx.
According to a release from The Nest, Maxx is a photographer and poet who is said to be able to capture his subjects' raw emotions through candid shots.
His ability to mold poetry and images "results in lifestyle renderings whose inherent depth and dimension resonate with viewers," says the release.
Nathaniel Roberts shares a similar vibe to Maxx, but through a different medium. As an illustrator and design artist, Roberts uses spray cans and brick canvases to exhibit an urban flare influenced by his native roots of Brooklyn. The graffiti culture he grew up in has caused an edginess in his creativity, blurring perception and imagination.
The opening reception for "The Urban Side of Light" will be this Friday, Sept. 7, at 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. at The Nest, located at 17 College Street. For more information, check out The Nest website at www.nest-nac.com.
