Anthony James Coffey's HEAD CANDIES Solo Art Show Opens at Ward-Nasse Gallery, Now thru 2/28

Ward-Nasse Gallery will present "Head Candies", a new art series by Anthony James Coffey. The solo art show, self-described as "Pleasure for the Art Snob in You!" will include artworks from 2001-2012 ranging in various sizes, will be on display from today, February 5, 2013 through February 28, 2013.

In the "Head Candies" series, Anthony composes a vivid recipe of the visual excesses of today's world of TV, Internet and Print -- including, money, figures, landscapes, cars, and subway maps - with transparent layers of colors, creating a powerful imprint in the viewer's mind. As an inventive exploration of popular imagery, "Head Candies" are a pure chaotic, random process of composition and color that invokes and inspires.

The opening reception for "Head Candies: Pleasure For the Art Snob in You!" will take place on Saturday, February 9, 2013 from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. at Ward-Nasse Gallery, 178 Prince Street, New York, NY 10012. The artist will be present.

Anthony J. Coffey, a New York City professional artist, was born in 1967 in Boone, North Carolina. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Art Institute of Boston, a Bachelor of Science from Appalachian State University and also completed an Art Foundation Program from the Cardiff School of Art, Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom. He is represented by Green Tara Group, LLC.

Ward-Nasse Gallery, founded by Harry Nasse, has been a respected landmark in SoHo, and a place of opportunity for artists for over 40 years. The gallery first opened in Boston during the early sixties. It subsequently moved to New York City in 1970, where it continues to be dedicated to all artists at various stages of their careers. As an alternative space, attendance to the gallery's 2,000 ft. first-floor space has risen over the years to its current 15,000 visitors annually. All modes of contemporary art are exhibited, from traditionally executed works to more experimental art forms. Artists from across the country share walls with artists from Europe, Asia and South America.
