Triptych by Nick Papas at Saint Arnold Brewery Company’s Beer Garden and Restaurant in Texas
Artist Nick Papas
In August 2018, the Houston Chronicle featured six local artists, including Nick Papas ’81, who each painted an alcove in Saint Arnold Brewery Company’s new Beer Garden and Restaurant. In his center panel, Nick painted Saint Arnold on his knees,
a diversion from the saint’s usually regal portrayal, which Nick hoped would inspire viewers to think of him in a new way. The side panels depict miracles attributed to Saint Arnold’s humility. Formerly of Pittsburgh, Nick has painted for churches
and homes across the country for more than three decades.
Nick explains his work in a video from the Saint Arnold Facebook page.
