Although Gallery NAGA remains closed, Nicole Chesney’s new paintings are installed in her studio in Rhode Island (aka NAGA South).

If you are considering a painting we would be happy to provide additional photos and videos or discuss a studio visit that aligns with Rhode Island’s Department of Health’s safety guidelines.

“I was trying to find a creative way to hold up our postcard-sized Rick Fox paintings to show scale without showing my disastrous quarantine fingernails. Here is one sitting in a Magnolia tree…  nature’s easel!! They looked beautiful bouncing in the wind.” (see a video here)

“When I told Nicole Chesney about a dream I had – a yellow painting glowing from inside a public space – I never thought she’d make it come to life and then surprise me with it.  It took a year, but I finally used the extra time I had on Mother’s Day, to install it.  It was worth the wait; it makes me smile at every point in my day.”
