October 6, 2007 --- Youth of Orange County / Contemplating, Pondering…the Future - Impressionist acrylic paintings by artist and teacher Lee J. Nixon will be on display October 6, at the Germanna Center for Advanced Technology, 18121 Technology Drive, Culpeper, Va. The exhibit is free and open to the public Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm.
Nixon’s Impressionist paintings reflect a need, care, and a reverence for a serene earth, and the desire to share it with the viewer through color, pattern, and texture.

“I believe that the harmonious designs surrounding us in an endless variety and amazing intricacy reflect the wisdom, love, justice, and sometimes humor of our Creator. I desire to share my aesthetical experiences with others.”

Nixon’s works primarily in acrylics for their versatility and compatibility with other media. Acrylics are thinned with water and mediums to achieve transparency as well as applied thickly in an impasto style to build highly textured surfaces. The finished work is the culmination of several under paintings, over paintings, numerous glazes and other refinements until the work is completed.

Nixon’s Impressionist acrylic paintings have been exhibited at the Dorothy Hart Center, King George Art Exhibition, The Arts Center in Orange, The Albemarle County Office Building, and The Woodberry Forest Walker Fine Arts Center.
