John Nolan
John Nolan's Abstract Work Receives Special Recognition At The Upstream People Gallery Omaha Nebraska The "10th Annual Abstraction Juried Online International Art Exhibition" highlights a number of artists' works from the semi-abstract and non-objective to the purely abstract. Remarkably this show includes artists from China, Ireland, Japan, Belgium and the Republic of Tchad in Chad. Three of Nolan's abstract pieces received special recognition and were judged solely on merit. "JOHN NOLAN of Dublin, Ireland brings power to his work by the brilliance of colour and the direct simplicity. The twelve inch square format also strengthens his work. Of special recognition are "Jazz Process 3", "Palimpsest 008" and "Palimpsest 010" even though all of his works are great in the group." Larry Bradshaw, Professor of Art, Nebraska University, USA.

Crescendo
John Nolan
John Nolan's Abstract Work On New Jazz CD Los Angeles based trumpeter Brian Swartz is about to launch his new CD - Three. "Three" is an homage to the great trumpeter Chet Baker and his trio from the late 1970s, which included Doug Raney on guitar and Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen on bass. For his trio, the Los Angeles based trumpeter chose two world-class sidemen: Larry Koonse on guitar and Darek Oles on bass. The trio performs with intensity, subtlety, and a striking poignancy, which could also very easily describe John's paintings. Brian is a big fan of John's work and wanted to use one of his images for the CD cover and booklet. He chose an abstract piece called " Crescendo" 48"x60" acrylic on canvas.
