Dan Nelson artist demo

Don't miss this chance to meet artist Dan Nelson and watch him perform in front of our gallery on October 8 and 9 during MumFest. Perform. You might ask, don't you mean paint?

Well watching Dan paint is more like watching a performance, he loves a crowd!

Dan Nelson started amazing people with his art-on-the-spot magic over 35 years ago. As a college student he did large chalk drawings with black light special effects; as a youth worker he produced 100-foot-long sand sculptures on the shores of Lake Michigan; he went on to create enchanting theatrical sets, award-winning street paintings, clandestine “art happenings” and non-stop party entertainment.

In 1998 he began painting on an 8 by 10-foot sheet of vinyl, washing off each scene to make room for the next ephemeral masterpiece.

You won't want to miss this chance to see Dan in action!  11-4, Saturday and Sunday, October 8 & 9. We'll have a show for Dan in March so stop by to get a preview!
