Portraits of our Times by Nina Molk

Portraits of our Times by Nina Molk
Opening reception Thursday, October 1, 2015 5-8 PM
On view in the Mizel Museum Rotating Exhibits Gallery through October 29th, 2015

With exceptional skill and in an expressive style, Nina Molk draws in charcoal pencil, portraits of personalities. With a mother who is an artist and a sculptor, and Nina’s own background in fine arts at CU and commercial art at Colorado Institute of Art, Nina Molk is a regular student in Boris Shoshensky’s class at the Mizel Museum regularly and has been part of Denver’s Jewish community for more than fifty years.

Nina says, “My goal is to bring the personality of the person I am drawing to life. I want you to look at the drawing and not be able to just walk away. The faces draw you in and require you to linger for just a while with them. I believe I have accomplished this in my drawings.”
