Speaking of her paintings, Nan says “I describe origin stories featuring powerful creator goddesses, which incorporate themes of invention, nature, and life. My paintings are expressive not figurative histories. Like those of the original story tellers, they recount actions that were imagined not seen.”
The paintings are taken from several different 6-panel story series, but they are created with the idea that they can stand alone as artworks.
Meet the artist at a public reception on Sunday February 19 from 4 to 6 PM, with light refreshments provided. An artist lunch to celebrate Women’s History Month is planned for March 20 at 11:30 AM. Nan will give a short talk about the work and will join participants for lunch and conversation. To reserve a seat contact Mary Hart email@example.com.
