In the Gallery: Artist Doug Nehrbass
Following an assessment of where my paintings were heading, I determined that it was time for a reset. I felt the need to return to the basics, and to concentrate on skills that make up the building blocks for my work. The most important being draftsmanship and using a simplified palette. As I was making the transition, I was invited to hold an exhibit here. After touring the space, I determined how to approach the task, and what the contents of the show would be. This body of work was produced to fulfill this purpose and to occupy these walls.
This installation of paintings is the culmination of another journey. It has proven to be one that helped me clear some personal hurdles and move on to the next destination.

Comic/Hypnotist Flip Orley
Cité des Arts is thrilled to welcome comic/hypnotist Flip Orley back to the Robert Sidman Theater! Orley’s show is a concert in hypnotism, bringing to the stage stand-up, improvisation, and sketch comedy in its true form. The laughter is deafening, and the crowd watches in amazement as their friends and family display some of the funniest bits comedy will ever know. The unbelievable becomes believable before your very eyes. A brilliant comedian, Flip has blended his love of laughter with an extraordinary gift for hypnotism, making him one of the most sought-after entertainers on the corporate stage, and setting attendance records on the comedy circuit across the country. Maury Povich has turned over his show to Flip twice, as has Ricki Lake. His three traffic-stopping appearances on NBC's "Today" met with rave reviews.
