Nancy Margolis Gallery is pleased to announce John Platt's first solo exhibition at the gallery. The show will be on view May 24th through June 23rd, 2018, with an opening reception on Thursday, May 24th from 6pm until 8pm.
John Platt (b. 1984) was born and raised in New York City, immediately exposing the young artist to the world’s great capital of art and culture. Early visits to the Museum of Modern Art opened his mind to the possibilities of being a painter, a career path that took him to The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, where he graduated in 2007. Platt has honed his skills as an abstractionist by allowing a wide range of media–architecture, fashion, music, photography, film–to influence his work. He has exhibited globally and currently splits his time between NYC and Africa, where he founded the art education program for children, How to Draw a Lion.
Jessica Peters (b. 1986) was born and currently resides in Laurentians, Canada. She holds a Bachelor's degree in Visual and Media Arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal (2009). Peters has been represented by Galerie Simon Blais in Montréal since 2012, making this the artist's first exhibition with Nancy Margolis Gallery.
