Customs House Museum to exhibit Ed Nash: Exploration abstracts in May

Clarksville's Customs House Museum and Cultural CenterClarksville, TN – Artist Ed Nash brings his large-scale abstracts to the Customs House Museum for the month of May in the exhibit Ed Nash: Exploration.

The acrylic paintings seep with mysterious shapes and textured layers of neutral hues. They are at once both earthy and industrial.

In works such as Plains, Nash creates a nebulous landscape, leaving the viewer reflecting on summer days at the beach, or gazing upon an expressionistic sky. Bold colors appear to burst through outer layers of thick paint, as if fighting to reach the surface.

Nash trained at Reading University, United Kingdom. Since calling Nashville home, he has received attention in many publications.

These include American Art Collector, International Artist, NFocus, Nashville Arts Magazine, and Fine Art Connoisseur, to name a few. His work is represented in galleries throughout the U.S. including Nashville, Memphis, Chattanooga and Knoxville, Tennessee, and Atlanta, GA.

"Plains" by Ed Nash.The popular ABC Television show Nashville has also featured paintings by Ed Nash.

His art can be found in many private and corporate collections including The Senate Building, Washington, DC, Onglatco Clinic, New York, NY Lyndhurst Foundation, Chattanooga TN, The Tennessee State Museum, and SunTrust Corporation, Atlanta GA

Ed Nash: Exploration will be on display through May 31st in the Customs House Museum’s Planters Bank Peg Harvill Gallery. This exhibit is sponsored in part by Nashville Arts Magazine.
