Nolan Preece: Chemigrams
October 9 to November 24
Artist talk and exhibit reception on November 15that 5:00 PM
A chemigramist and photographer for over forty years, Nolan Preece has devoted his work to understanding and mastering the challenging techniques of early photography and conceiving of new photo-based processes at the same time. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, his fondness for experimental photography led him to originate a photographic abstraction process that employed chemical masking techniques and staining in conjunction with a printed image. Preece called his resulting prints “chemograms,” but after recently engaging with a group of artists using similar processes—most notably Pierre Cordier of Brussels, Belgium—Preece has taken to using the term “chemigram” to describe his prints. Chemical graphic structures and coloration play an important role in much of this work by providing a visual uniqueness for environmental themes.
Thomas Deans Fine Art was established in 1983 and during the following decade became known as one of the leading American specialists in British art on paper from the great age of watercolor, 1750-1860. Since the turn of the century, the gallery has continually expanded its inventory and exhibitions to include an eclectic and varied presentation of modern and contemporary art in a variety of media by American and European artists, ranging from mid- and late-career masters of international reputation, such as British painter-sculptor-printmaker Christopher Le Brun and renowned American painter-illustrator Mark English, to emerging regional artists of exceptional talent.
Beginning in 2004, the gallery added contemporary photography to its exhibitions of works on paper. The gallery now offers photography, including gelatin-silver prints, analog c-prints,platinum/palladium prints, and digital format, by a select group of emerging and mid-career artists of regional and national reputation.

Spencer Throckmorton first developed an interest in Latin America, particularly the Pre-Columbian civilizations, while studying Latin American art history at university. He traveled extensively throughout Mexico and Central America and gained valuable hands-on experience with antique Pre-Columbian objects. As his interest in ancient sculpture grew, it led him to the Far East where he began to collect Neolithic Period Chinese jade objects. He has now become a leading dealer of museum quality antique Chinese jades and stone Buddhist sculpture with active participation in the key Asia Week events each spring in New York.
Artworks acquired by Throckmorton are in the collections of leading museums here and abroad. The gallery not only sells works of art to international museums and important corporate and private collections but has also published an extensive group of scholarly catalogues in the fields of Latin American vintage and modern photography, Pre-Columbian antique sculpture and ancient Chinese jade, working with recognized scholars on these subjects. In addition, Throckmorton Fine Art has participated in the most important art fairs including the annual Winter Antiques Show, where it has been a featured exhibitor for the last 30 years. The gallery’s Executive Director, Kraige Block, is a Vice President of AIPAD (Association of International Photography Art Dealers) and the gallery has been an exhibitor at this New York event for more than 20 years. Throckmorton has also been a member of ATADA (The Antique Tribal Art Dealers Association, Inc.) and the International Association for Ancient Asian and Tribal Art (formerly NADAOPA).
