Harmony Acres

July 5 - 29, 2007

Opening Reception: 5-8pm
First Thursday, July 5, 2007

Artist Talk: 2pm on Saturday, July 7, 2007

PUNCH presents new egg tempera paintings by Nathan DiPietro. Exploring the green fields and blue skies of ‘Harmony Acres,’ this series presents idyllic landscapes dotted with pastoral communities and miles of pristine woodland recalling images of yesteryear. It’s a picture perfect setting in which to raise a family and bask in the bounties of country living. DiPietro’s intricate, stylized and vibrant paintings critique contemporary living in relation to utopianism, with inspiration from classical icon painting and American Regionalism.

DiPietro received his BFA from Central Washington University in 2003 and moved to Santa Fe, NM. He has since returned to Washington to live in Seattle and shows locally and nationally. He has studied with the contemporary tempera painter Koo Schadler and Italian iconographer Father Gianluca Busi.

PUNCH also proudly announces the first in a series of artist talks coinciding with the featured exhibition. Come and hear DiPietro describe his technical processes and conceptual ideas:
