Nicholas Heaney

This beautiful piece will bring the Cape’s gorgeous beach views directly into your home. This 30x48 inch acrylic canvas painting is the work of Nicholas Heaney. Nick is a Cape Cod artist with a body of work directly inspired by the coastal landscape that surrounds him. Using the process of heavy impasto to sculpt waves that break the two-dimensional plane of the traditional painting, Heaney achieves what some refer to as sculpture on canvas. Nick graduated from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and was an apprentice to the esteemed Cape Cod artist, Steve Lyons. Heaney currently is working as Artist in Residence at ARTNOVA gallery in Chatham, where he feels blessed to be able to paint every day.

 

ARTNOVA gallery is located in the heart of Chatham and hosts numerous emerging artists and photographers. With over 2,500 square feet of space, ARTNOVA functions as both a working studio and a full gallery.
