Legendary Pop Artist Going Strong at 84 In Two NYC Galleries

One of my favorite fine artists / pop art illustrators is still going strong at the young age of 84 showing in two back to back gallery shows uptown and in Chelsea.  His work can be viewed at Pace Prints uptown at and at Driscol Babcock Galleries at 525 West 25th Street in Chelsea.
Don Nice is a classic figure in American Art and has been a huge figure in the art scene for the past half century.  He burst on the scene when the Whitney Museum of American Art acquired his "American Series" in the early 1960's as was marked on of the new perceputalrealists."  His energy is derived from classic pop art combining a naturalist interest in everyday items with a twist.  Popular works are featured also at The Met (NYC), Arnhems Museum in Holladn, Art Gallery of Ontario in Canada, National museums of Art, and Yals University Art gallery has also acquired a large selection of his works.   He is also shown at prominent art fairs and in galleries around the world.  Nice is originally from Californai and currently resides in Hudson Vallery and New York City and if you are lucky enough, you can spot his on the early side at one of his shows, meeting a true art master for yourself.
