The Alcoholic is an original painting featuring a drinker who is smoking and alone. This was shown in a group Art Exhibit at the International Arts Complex building in St. Louis, MO. Nate was 23 years old when he created this artwork while living at the Washington Avenue Art Lofts in downtown St. Louis, Missouri.
In 2005, "The Alcoholic" appeared on the cover of the international Hablemos magazine's December 2005 issue. The Hablemos (loosely translated means "Let's Talk") is an international publication produced by the Sedronar, an Argentina State Department agency, and has a readership of over ten thousand Argentineans that includes public agents, ambassadors, doctors, journalists, and scientists. The Sedronar fights narcotraffic and helps Argentineans overcome alcoholism as well as other similar addictions. The Sedronar discovered the Nate McClain Gallery during an online image search and specifically requested to use "The Alcoholic" for the upcoming Hablemos cover. After confirming the legitimacy of the Sedronar, the Nate McClain Gallery was honored to fulfill their request as a posthumous honor to Nate's legacy.
