A longstanding member of the Sager Reeves Gallery roster of artists, the highly prolific Ken Nichols returns to the main gallery with a new series that explores sentimentality, value, and loss with a balance of solemnity and humor. With an eye for objects and scenes that carry an implied history, Nichols has arranged compositions that elevate his subjects out of the everyday and into the realm of icons, treasures, and relics. Light plays heavily in this act of elevation, metaphorically anointing his chosen focal points, and showing with a deft sense of sarcasm how we exalt our everyday treasures and later, just as easily, discard and forget them.
