Local Artist Nicole Cournoyer - First Friday
For the next First Friday in Manayunk, we are happy to feature artist Nicole Cournoyer. We are hosting a reception to launch the month-long showing of Nicole’s colorful and abstract paintings. All paintings will be available to purchase. Refreshments will be provided. Come on out and support local talent!
I am a physician assistant in bone marrow transplant, but I have been painting for 12 years. At first it was simply a past time, but since I became a healthcare practitioner, it has transformed into my therapy, and release. I’ve devoted my life to helping people with terminal cancer, and the only way that I can grasp the suffering and simultaneous strength that I witness regularly is through art.
My paintings aren’t necessarily dark- I paint adversity, hope, the souls of the people I’ve lost-what they’ve imprinted on me, forever. My paintings are taking over my life and living space, and I’d love to get them out into the world. I want people to see the beauty and honesty that I am so privileged to have a glimpse of every day.
