SOUTH STREET ART GALLERY NOW REPRESENTING LOCAL ARTIST NICHOLAS TINDALL
The artwork of local artist Nicholas Tindall will now be on display at The South Street Art Gallery in Easton, MD. His recent works caught the attention of gallery owner Alan Brock, who seeks out local talent to show in one of the best-known galleries in the region.
“I didn’t expect anything more than a few minutes of Alan’s time to get feedback on some new pieces I’d completed recently. I absolutely did not expect he’d want to feature my art in the gallery,” says Tindall.
“Nicholas’s work is different, colorful and well done. His paintings will look great on a contemporary collector’s walls,” says Brock.
“To be amongst so much incredible local and national talent is unbelievable, and I’m very thankful for the opportunity,” adds Tindall. Other artists represented at South Street Art Gallery include Plein Air Easton award winners Jill Basham, Hai-Ou Hou, Patrick Lee, Nancy Tankersley and many other nationally and internationally recognized artists.
Tindall’s work features vibrant florals and elements of nature. His style is best described as contemporary, hyper-realism with juxtaposing, abstract components. He is best known for a series of successful, innovative pop-up shows, including “Photosynthesis” and “SYMMETRY”. Tindall has participated in The Arts In Easton banner program by the Avalon Foundation and this year’s Local Color Exhibition during Plein Air Easton, sponsored by the Working Artists Forum.
The South Street Art Gallery, owned by fine art dealer & collector Alan Brock, is located at 5 South Street in Easton, MD. For more information, visit: www.southstreetartgallery.com.
Nicholas Tindall is an Easton, MD native and works from his studio on Wright’s Mill Farm in Trappe, MD. For more information about the artist, visit: www.nicholastindall.com.

Nicholas Tindall releases all-new collection of work, entitled ‘Virtue’
Themes of farm, sky and nature permeate these striking floral portraits taken from life on the Eastern Shore.
‘Virtue’ is the latest body of work from artist Nicholas Tindall, and his first studio release since 2015. Consisting of 9 brand-new oil-on-canvas paintings, this cohesive collection captures micro-moments and scenery from the Eastern Shore. Stylistically, they are a throwback to the approach the artist first utilized in 2012; using photographs for inspiration and translating them into colorful combinations of realism and abstraction.
“This wasn’t a retreat from the experimental stuff (see 2015’s Photosynthesis and SYMMETRY), but more of an exercise…literally a workout, trying to get back in the groove. Other than commissions over the past couple years, it’s been awhile since I’ve put serious time in the studio…so starting someplace safe and working my way back out again made the most sense.” All of the paintings were completed between April and July, ahead of the Local Color Exhibition, which the artist was selected to participate in this year, during the annual Plein Air Easton Festival.
“You can approach these in a straightforward and unassuming manner. They have flashes of darkness and shadows, but more in a sexy, stylish, “night out on the town” kind of way. That’s just to balance and position the tremendous positivity of these pieces. These are in the spirit of fun. A majority of paintings are introspective and serious. These are happy, outgoing and throwing out high-fives.”
“Many of the painting titles reflect that attitude, like “She’s Electric”, which might project a girl on the dance floor, or “Incredible Hulks”, which is a reference to reading and drawing comic books as a kid. One of the reasons this collection is called ‘Virtue’ is because of the purity of emotion I was feeling, and hope the audience feels…seeking truth and living in the moment. Being a part of everything, but completely unattached. There’s an inherent beauty in that time and space. Take a walk outside, in a place that feels good to you, and exist in that reality for at least a few minutes.”
To view and purchase select pieces from ‘Virtue’, visit The South Street Art Gallery in Easton, MD (www.southstreetartgallery.com). The entire collection may be viewed online at www.nicholastindall.com.
Limited edition prints of “Rays for Days” and “Nectar of the Gods” are also available on Tindall’s website.
