Provenance Gallery June Exhibition

Provenance Gallery is pleased to present Omissions, new work by Nicole Geary.

The exhibition Omissions is a culmination of work created during and after Geary’s residency in Scotland in the spring of 2016. She was selected for the Hospitalfield Interdisciplinary Residency, and used the time to respond to place and the meaning she found in the rocks of the surrounding area:  

“I traveled to particularly important geologic sites such as Siccar Point at the North Sea, and studied other ephemera as it applied to my memory of the visit, including smells, weather, and even the bruises I got in traversing the landscape. In Omissions, I make connections to the story in the rocks and the telling of our own stories: leaving out some details, coloring the narrative, and the eventual erosion from our memories. These geologic sites helped me to see our stories much like a book, layered and lithified, but altogether a glimpse that is bright and tangible one minute and grayed out the next.” 


Nicole Geary is an American artist hailing from the green, swampy lands of Florida, where she earned a BFA in printmaking from the University of Florida. She graduated with an MFA in printmaking from the University of South Dakota in 2013. She exhibits in juried print and sculpture shows, international residencies, and regularly participates in printmaking conferences. Geary teaches at the Southwest School of Art and St. Philips College, was a resident in the Artist Lab at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, and has been awarded a grant from the Artist Foundation of San Antonio.
