Date: February 24, 2012
Place: Nieto Fine Art Gallery. 565 Sutter Street in SF.
RSVP: All are welcome, and light bites and libations will be served.
You’re invited to the opening reception of the Nieto Fine Art Gallery in one week.
The spectacular reception will be the first-ever showcase for John Nieto and photographer (and son) John A. Nieto. The father-son team have been featured locally and internationally for several decades; both will be present at the opening.
John Nieto is one of the country’s most dynamic contemporary artists. “I employ a subject matter that is familiar and express it the way I see it,” Nieto explains. “I focus on the use of vibrant color and strong assertive lines.” His distinctive style, combination of subject matter, bold comparisons and searing color, is instantly recognizable, and has been showcased in over 40 galleries and museums internationally. The past several years have been devoted almost exclusively to painting.
John A. Nieto, Nieto’s elder son, has created a name for himself through the lens of a camera. His collection has been featured in dozens of galleries and fundraisers in the San Francisco bay area. “The camera provides this perspective to freeze and observe a moment in time that I can assign an emotional impact to,” Nieto explains.
The evening will highlight the unparalled level of talent, all in one family; from gallery owner Anaya Nieto’s eye for curating, to John and John A.’s painting and photography skills.
