2013 Events Planned
Although our gallery in Cincinnati has technically been open (by appointment only) for much of the year, it is finally getting the final touches (furniture, track lighting, signage, etc). That being said, Nicholas will be planning an official Grand Opening party within the next couple of months, so send us an email (email@example.com) if you would like an invitation.
In addition to the party, we have a couple of art shows and expos scheduled already, so come meet us and see the artwork in person - you will not regret it!
Nicholas Yust's metal wall art on NBC!
Keep your eyes on the office walls of the President of the Georgia Federation on NBC's hit television show, "Revolution." Their set decorator purchased a few of Nicholas' metal designs for the walls, and as this little teaser to the right shows, they look great with the decor! The shows were just recently filmed with Nicholas' metal artwork in the last couple of months, and have begun airing as of 2 weeks ago.
If you haven't started watching Revolution on NBC yet, we highly recommend it - a really neat take on a sort of post-Apocalyptic world with an energy/technology blackout. In other words, my worst nightmare as a webmaster! =)

Interview w/ Copper.org
Here are a few snippets from an article prepared by Anne J Ryan of Copper.org, from an interview she conducted with Nicholas Yust:
"Take a typical Yust wall sculpture: a perfectly cut frame of aluminum and copper offer open windows, displaying deep red flushes of heat and electricity. There’s the feeling that the uncontrollable has been controlled, the untethered tethered, the impossible made possible. Yust captures the surge of energy and infuses it into his sculptures.”
“I’ve always been fascinated with the fact that you can’t see all forms of energy,” said Yust. He explained that in his pieces, he tries to show what energy would look like if it could be seen “in a human element.”
A special thanks to Ms. Ryan and her efforts to represent Nicholas' talents with copper. This was a wonderful look into the emotional side of Nicholas' artwork, and how he expresses himself through the designs he creates in metal. This article was specifically focused around his copper work, of which some of his most beautiful wall sculptures are created.

Interview w/ Modern Metals Magazine
Here are a few snippets from an interview Nicholas Yust recently had with Nick Wright - Editor in Chief for Modern Metals Magazine and FFJournal.net:
...To color and finish his metalwork, Yust invented a proprietary process that applies pigment to ground metal. Essentially, paint goes on dry and is activated with an ultraviolet clear coat, he says. “I’ve made colors that I have not seen anybody do or come close as far as the vibrancy and transparency of the color.”
“...In terms of materials, I prefer aluminum,” he says. “It’s more energetic, it’s brighter when it’s ground. Also, when you apply transparent pigment on top of it, because it has a more white color to the metals, it gives off brighter tones...”
Thank you again to Mr. Wright for his interest in Nicholas' techniques. This was a great opportunity to get some technical insight into Nicholas' processes and the skill and craftsmanship necessary to create the amazing metal works that Nicholas has become known for.
