“The 13th Hour” Group Gallery Show

by ncwinters on October 12, 2014

Honored to be included in the annual “The 13th Hour” group show with such a talented roster!

The annual “The 13th Hour” show was last night at Last Rites Gallery, (oops, meant to get this out earlier!) and looked like a mega success. My piece was a direct tribute to the passing of H.R. Giger and am honored it got to hang in Last Rites, as I understand the owner, Paul Booth was a close personal friend of Giger and deeply crushed by his loss. It was a tough piece to make, as the impact of Giger’s passing was heavier than I thought. I’ve always been a fan of his work, and I guess I didn’t realize quite how much until he passed. I tried to pay homage to his works and yet still try to keep my own feel about the piece, and I think it succeeded. I am extremely pleased with the custom sculpted frame for this exact reason. Cheers to everyone who made it out to the show, hopefully you can make it out again next month where I will have my show, “Overgrowth.” Enjoy!

Show Announcement: “Overgrowth.”

by ncwinters on September 5, 2014

Big solo show news!

I’m pleased to announce my solo show at Last Rites Gallery coming this November 22, 2014: “Overgrowth.” It’s my largest and most ambitious collection of works to date, and I’ve been working away on this collection for the better part of a year. If you’re in the New York City area, I’d love to see you at the show.

I’ll be posting some sneak peeks in the coming weeks, but for now have kept much of the work under wraps. Thanks as always to everyone for the kindness and support.





A new show, featuring my fellow artists of the PRISMA Collective! I’m happy to once again show at one of my favorite galleries with my fellow artists of the PRISMA Collective for an upcoming show entitled “Last Breath of Summer.” The show is at Subtext Gallery in downtown San Diego, and opens Saturday, July 19th at 6PM. I made another custom hand-sculpted frame as I just can’t seem to stop myself. There’s something very satisfying working up a found frame to get it exactly how I want it. It’s an enjoyable way to combine working with sculpture with painting, and each piece ends up extremely rewarding. More about the show:

**** PRISMA is an international artist collective of thirty creatives, founded by Kaspian Shore in November 2011. In their second group show at Subtext, a selection of artists from the PRISMA Collective have come together to bring a touch of sentimentality to their latest exhibition, Last Breath of Summer. Think of the last few rays of sunshine before the arrival of autumn, a touch of gold and fading warmth, a memory of long nights by the sea, of playing hide and seek in yellow wheat fields. Last Breath of Summer is a melancholy goodbye to the high of the year, celebrated by artists Tom BagshawJ.A.W. CooperNicole GustafssonMartine JohannaEdith LebeauKelly McKernanLilly PiriAudrey PongraczKaspian ShoreKelly VivancoCasey Weldon, and N.C. Winters. ****

The full online preview is currently up at Subtext’s website. Enjoy “In Like a Lamb.”  See you at the show!
