Nancy Coleman and Darrel Rhea
November 3 – 26, 2016
First Thursday: November 3, 5 – 8p
Nancy Coleman and Darrel Rhea have both been sailors since childhood, spending much of their adult lives sailing. Over the years, both artists have developed a unique style to express their shared experiences and views of the water. Darrel’s romantic realism is painted digitally; Nancy’s visionary works are in acrylic and encaustic. Water Is Everything is their first show together, and Darrel’s public debut as an artist.
They met when both worked in design, finding romance and adventure on the water together navigating the San Francisco Bay and California Delta, living for years on a wooden Norwegian trawler in Sausalito. In 2001, Nancy and Darrel married and in 2011 moved to Seattle partly to explore the enticing Pacific Northwest’s waterways.
