Reception for artist Nick Freeman at Virgie R. Fleenor Art Gallery of the Bristol Public Library

May 04, 2013 | 12 am

During the months of May and June, an exhibit by Nick Freeman will display in the Bristol Public Library’s Virgie R. Fleenor Art Gallery.

Nick Freeman is a Bristol native and graduate of Tennessee High School. He has maintained close ties with Bristol where his parents and many friends still live. He credits his creative interest to growing up in Tennessee where he learned from his parents and grandparents that everything can be creative.

Freeman has a degree in Fine Arts from Tennessee Technological University. He has shown his work in exhibitions from Virginia to Florida. Each drawing is an original piece and one of a kind.

Working in charcoal gives him a unique look at his subjects. "I like the idea of capturing a moment in time. Shadows work well for this because they last only as long as the light lasts and then they change forever. I continue to be fascinated by the power of light to transform feelings and emotions,” states Freeman.

A public reception will be held at the Bristol Public Library on Saturday, May 4th from 6-9 p.m.

Freeman’s exhibit will be on display in the Virgie R. Fleenor Art Gallery during the months of May and June. The library is open Monday- Thursday 9 a.m.-8 p.m., Friday- Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays 2 p.m.-5 p.m.
