BNG Studio is pleased to announce their first ever seasonal online exhibition. Bryan is widely recognized for his iconic woodcuts, but his body of work extends far beyond that. With Winter Reveal 2016, BNG Studio is showcasing original pieces by Bryan that capture the essence of the season. Each piece was chosen by the Studio to invoke a sense of calmness and serenity, of quiet reflection on winter nights before they give way to the new hope of spring. Whether it's strolling through the woods amidst a soft, falling snow, or gazing out a frost-covered window, these rare works by Bryan Nash Gill are sure to take you on a journey through the Winter season.
Winter Reveal 2016 will be available online until March 2017. Bring home a view into Winter today!
BNG Studio is excited to announce the release of three new reproductions of Bryan's most iconic woodcuts. There is only one, rare original print of each of these woodcuts in existence. "Pine Plank II" and "Pine Wedge" were popular pieces in Bryan's past exhibits, but "Wasp Wood" was discovered in the studio and has never been seen before.
A limited edition run of 100 certified-archival pigment prints for each woodcut is being produced. After they are sold, they will not be produced again. Don't miss this opportunity to bring home a few of Bryan's most rare and stunning woodcuts!
Imagine sharing that moment of discovery with a child as they flip their thoughtfully chosen tile to reveal the correct matching Woodcut below. The intense focus on their face gives way to a wide smile of excitement. A matching pair! Found all by themselves, they revel in their accomplishment.
Imagine sharing that moment of discovery with a good friend, over a glass of wine and thoughtful conversation, flipping a tile and momentarily losing yourself in the soul of a tree, forever captured in your chosen tile. You pass it to your friend and tell them to note a particular detail. They smile in response, commenting on how they had never noticed that before.
The new Woodcut Memory Game, by Princeton Architectural Press, is now available for people of all ages to enjoy their own process of discovery. 26 pairs of Bryan's most recognized Woodcuts in a keepsake box, are waiting to be played, shared, and enjoyed.

Two of Bryan's most iconic woodcuts will be on display at The Center for Contemporary Printmaking's 20th Retrospective: Highlights From The Past 20 Years. Many of those years were an enormous part of Bryan's life: CCP was his second studio, his second home, and his second family. The techniques he learned, practiced and honed at CCP were critically influential in his process for creating woodcuts.
Bryan was a proud part of the success of CCP's first 20 years and surely would have looked forward in anticipation of the next 20. Please join us in thanking CCP for their contribution to Bryan's art and life by attending CCP's 20th Retrospective and helping celebrate 20 wonderful years!

I will also be using Bryan’s Facebook and Twitter accounts as a way to let you know about upcoming events, exhibitions and news. I hope that this will keep us all connected. We have some wonderful things planned for Bryan Nash Gill Studio! Bryan may have left the studio, but his presence still warms the space, and his vision endures to guide us. We hope you’ll join us in continuing the journey Bryan started.
Thank you again!

Bryan Nash Gill passed away unexpectedly of natural causes on Friday, May 17, 2013.
He was the loving husband of Gina (Kiss) Gill for 12 years. Born in Hartford Hospital on Nov. 3, 1961,
Bryan grew up in Granby and Simsbury, attended Renbrook and then Westminster before earning degrees in Fine Art at Tulane and CCAC in San Francisco. A prolific artist, naturalist and gourmet, Bryan was first and foremost a friend, father and husband of profound generosity, humility and love. He was the kind of person parents want their children to become. A lover of life, endlessly curious, he could be single minded about his work but never at the expense of hospitality and laughter. Though based in New Hartford, Bryan's life was truly global with friends and professional networks across the world. Recently, his work as an artist had gained recognition in publications and exhibitions at an international level and critical success was at hand. He will be deeply missed by many, and lovingly remembered for years. To know Bryan was to know his family, the center of his world.
He is survived by his wife, Gina Kiss and son Forest Nash Gill; his mother, Elizabeth Nash Muench and step-father Thomas of Beaufort South Carolina and North Hero, Vermont; an older brother, Chas Gill, his wife Linda, and their children, Charlie and Caroline of Bowdoinham, Maine; in-laws, Larry Kiss and wife Ann of Westport, and sister-in-law, Denise Schatra and husband Kenneth of Newfane, Vermont. He also leaves step-brothers and sisters; Caren Ross and husband Gordon of New Hartford, Louise Pettit and husband Jim of Atlanta, Georgia; Larry Pratt and wife Reyna of McClean, Virginia; and Alison Forrest and husband Todd of Ridgefield. He was predeceased by his father Charles Fairchild Gill.
