The Eagle Nest Gallery will open its exhibit "Liquid Sublimation," featuring the artwork of area artist Gary Harper, on Jan. 4, 2013.
The Nazareth alumnus is a self-realized painter who draws his inspiration from nature, monographs, frequent visits to museums, his brother's and his shared collection of others' works, and his own fecund imagination.
Harper works almost exclusively with the knife in oils on canvas as a convenience. His overall perspective on life and art is influenced by the Chinese Masters, Expressionism, Impressionism and Abstraction. His art contains references to nature, to the classics, and to the works of those he admires who painted before him. His highly chromatic paintings are truly unique, and cannot be directly compared to the works of any other painter.
The exhibit opens on Jan. 4, 2013 and runs through Jan. 30, 2014. An artist talk will be held on Monday, Jan. 7 at 1:45 p.m., and the public is invited to attend.
Eagle Nest Gallery -- located inside Nazareth Area High School -- is open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. It is also open during cultural events.
