SNOHOMISH — Richard Nash has traveled where his pursuit of art took him, landing in Oak Harbor to spend 30 years as an influential art teacher. But the 1965 Snohomish High graduate isn’t done yet: Now his work is the center of a gallery exhibit filling the Museum of Northwest Art in downtown La Conner.
The exhibit runs through Feb.5.
He works in metal and abstract painting with acrylics.
He has all of the main floor with eight sculptures and about 35 paintings. The exhibition is called “Richard Nash: Consonance.”
One piece is 12 feet tall steel.
“Corten steel ended up being the medium I was drawn to,” Nash said. He works with a welder to fabricate the metal pieces, and works with former student Greg Hancock to translate the designs into CAD drawings. It comes from his love of architecture, he said. His paintings use a Northwest palette.
The museum is at 121 S. First Street, La Conner. It has free admission.

Nash studied art in Europe, including in the Soviet Union, plus Japan.

An additional show of Richard Nash’s work is on display through Jan. 30 at the Perry and Carlson gallery, 504 South 1St Street in Mount Vernon.
