Nathan Bond’s Work in “Preparations: Artists’ Sketchbooks and Journals”


Parsons Illustration Adjunct Nathan Bond is featured in ” Preparations: Artists’ Sketchbooks and Journals” at the the Tower Fine Arts Center in Brockport, NY.  Much of the development for an artwork happens well before the brush meets canvas, the hand meets clay, or the finger meets camera, etc. These preliminary inspirations and concepts go mostly unnoticed and unappreciated. This exhibit, curated by gallery director Tim Massey, brings to light the methods artists employ to inform themselves of the possibilities for their as yet unrealized works.

The Tower Fine Arts Center is located on the north side of Holley Street in the village of Brockport. Parking Lot G is located adjacent to the Tower Fine Arts Center and handicapped parking is available at the front of the building.
350 New Campus Drive

Show on view through Tuesday, October 13
Gallery Hours: Monday – Friday: 10 am – 5 pm
Sunday: 1 pm – 4 pm
