Palette Gallery Opening
Peter J. Hemsley
Nathan Richard Phelps
Palette opens its gallery space with the first showing of work by Peter J. Hemsley. We welcome the public to join us during this art-filled weekend in San Francisco. Tickets include entry, bites and first glass of bubbles as well as the opportunity to paint alongside local artist Nathan Richard Phelps.
Peter J. Hemsley presents his art work for the first time. Inspired by an intimate relationship with nature that his profession as a Chef has afforded him, Peter's work reflects an admiration for the beauty of the edible world. Peter's artistic process often begins with a deep contemplation behind historic, trendy, or personal recipes, then a very involved reinterpretation process translating the idea or "recipe" into a more abstract "artistic" notion or representation. The result is a very unique art reflecting a Chef's creative imagination: colorful, playful, vivid, and most importantly, appetizing.
