Ken Nash: Biography

Ken Nash was born and raised in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia and has created art for fifty years using a variety of mediums including ink, coloured pencil and acrylics on paper, wood and canvas. Inspired by the beauty of the valley around him, he started painting when he was eight years old and over time developed the techniques that he applies today. His work can now be described in the genre of photorealism and is an excellent conduit to reflect the beauty of the wilderness of British Columbia, Canada, and other parts of the world.

For most of his career, he focused on commissioned work and continues to provide clients with an opportunity to have his beautiful art hanging on their walls. As an example, Ken completed a corporate commission for a government agency for their boardroom in Vancouver in 2015. It involved ten feet of canvas with an agricultural theme. In 2016, he delivered a privately commissioned painting to a client in Langley.

He also exhibits his work throughout Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, other parts of B.C., and is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA). Ken also became a member of the Artists for Conservation in October 2016. He is also a member of the board for the group Westart which holds at least two significant exhibitions each year. The next exhibition will be at the Glass House Estate Winery from Friday September 8 through Sunday September 10 2017.

In the past five years, he has had a number of solo and group juried exhibitions including, involvement for several years with the Langley Studio Tour, the Fraser Valley Biennale, a joint exhibition at the Newton Cultural Centre, a solo exhibition with the Langley Art Council at the Langley City Hall, exhibitions with the Delta Art Council, an exhibition for the TNSC Open Show in Kamloops, and many exhibitions sponsored by the FCA at their gallery on Granville Island. In 2011, he was recognized as an award winning artist by the FCA at the Annual International Representational Show.

Ken has been identified as one of thirty artists whose work will be digitized to produce wraps for the utility boxes in Richmond and Steveston through 2017 until the end of 2019. He is also involved in donating a painting to a conservation effort at Science world in Vancouver this fall (2017) that is focusing on the risks facing amphibians in Canada and elsewhere.

His work is currently represented in the Grant Berg Galleries in Grande Prairie and Kananaskis Alberta, and he is actively seeking to expand his representation elsewhere. As a result, Ken also exhibited his work in Toronto at the Arta gallery for their summer show this year (2017).
