‘Common Grounds’ by Erik Nohalty

“I am inspired by familiar surroundings that are often overlooked or ignored,” Erik Nohalty said, “[working] from photo reference and memory together, capturing a moment in time before it evaporates. I seek gaps in the common spaces around us.” It is said Louisville is a city of neighborhoods, each with its own personality. Nohalty grew up in The Highlands and has family throughout the city and in Southern Indiana. These nuances, both familiar and overlooked, are captured in this body of new work. His media is mixed, using painting, drawing and print techniques together to create scenes in saturated color. The opening reception for “Common Grounds” is Friday, March 24 from 5-10 p.m.
