About the artist:
Nick Serratore grew up in Pennsylvania and moved to Lewes, Delaware in 1996 where he currently resides. Like many artists both in the past and present, he is inspired by the place where he is located. Coming from Pennsylvania, he was immediately struck by the flat landscape in Delaware. In the days and months that followed his move there, his impression was enhanced to include a remarkable palate of colors, a vast array of textures, and an ever changing pattern of lights and shadows.
The artist writes, "I work primarily in pastels. I like their brilliance and immediacy and feel somewhat able to capture the textures of the landscape. The tactile experience of the medium and majesty of the setting transport me into a contemplative state. I try with my work to share with the viewer where I am."
He graduated from the Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia and from Wilmington University. In the past decade he has had multiple solo exhibitions, participated in many charitable events, and won numerous awards for his pastel landscapes. He won a 2012 Individual Artist Fellowship Grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts for emerging Delaware artist.
