The Mendocino Art Center hosts a free Second Saturday Artists Reception each month. Enjoy snacks and wine, and meet the exhibiting artists. Join us prior to the gallery reception as we open up the art studios. Meet the 2016/17 Artists in Residence, watch them work and view new works created in the Mendocino Art Center studios. Refreshments will be available.
Nicholas Collins’ “More Cops” showing in Gallery Ten is a continuation of his series of linocut prints inspired by law enforcement themes, based on iconic images of 1970’s police officers. The works are printed with Caligo oil inks on acid-free paper.
NICHOLAS COLLINS is a Northern California printmaker working mainly in linoleum cut and etching. He started making art as a kid at the Berkeley Children's Art Studio in the '70s. Nicholas studied sculpture at UCSB, printmaking at The College of the Redwoods, and then did a two-year residency at Kala Art Institute where he trained under master printmakers Kazuko Wantanabe and Emmanuel Montoya. My work can be seen at Northcoast Artists Gallery in Fort Bragg, Cobalt Fine Art Gallery in Mendocino and the Mendocino Art Center. All prints are hand printed with Caligo oil inks on acid-free paper.
