You lucky Prestonians – the new Secret Preston Art card is by David Nash. Unbelievable!
Secret Preston Art (SPA) have just put all the limited edition cards in the venues around the city – so if you want one you’d better get going.
To remind you – each month throughout 2012 an edition of artists cards will be available for free in various venues around Preston. Every month there will be a new artist. The edition is limited to 100. The artist remains a secret until all the cards are in the venues.
Blog Preston will help reveal more about each artist every month.
David Nash has shown work all over the world – USA, Japan, France, Spain, Australia, Germany, Switzerland, Korea, Hawaii, Poland and Italy and has work in many, many collections: Uffizi Gallery in Italy, Tate Gallery in London, The Arts Council Collection, The British Council, Soloman R Guggenheim Museum in New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo to name just a few.
He is a Royal Academician and was awarded the OBE for services to the arts in 2004.
He is currently showing work at Kew in a major exhibition
And he is also showing work here in Preston!
David Nash has made new work especially for this project – so we are absolutely delighted. Only 100 in total have been printed and distributed – so if you’d like to own a David Nash limited edition post card – they are FREE!!
Get yourself down to The Museum of Lancashire, The Tourist Info Centre, Scene on Friargate, Wonderland on Friargate, The Pavilion in Avenham Park and the Continental Pub before they all get snapped up.
