January FOBL Showcase Artist

January FOBL Showcase Artist
Nick Depalma
Artist Bio:
Nick DePalma sees his art form, assemblage, closely related to his work as professional architect. Assemblage, also referred to as “found object art”, utilizes natural or man-made materials to create unique works.
“I believe that interpretation of my work is dependent on the viewer’s ability to suspend notions regarding the original purpose or identity of objects used,” Nick says.
Nick has dedicated 15 years to producing his sculptures. He studied studio art while attending Vanderbilt University. After graduation, Nick revisited his childhood fascination with construction and studied architecture at the University of Tennessee. During his 36 year architectural career, he worked on high profile projects such as additions to the Tennessee Performing Arts Center and renovations to the State Capital.
In 2013, Nick was as an “Artist in Residence”, a program sponsored by the Arts Council of Williamson County, working with teachers and students. He has held exhibitions at many Nashville locations, including the Nashville International Airport and Tennessee Governor’s Mansion.
