Description: Meticulous drawings and dreamlike paintings
A graduate of the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, Nan has had solo exhibits in Storrs as part of the Artists Live program and at the Clare Gallery in Hartford. She was one of three participating artists in “Three Women: Visions in Contrast” at the Hartford Public Library ArtWalk Gallery. Her work has appeared in juried exhibits sponsored by the CoSo Gallery in Boston, the Tubac Center of the Arts (AZ), Slater Memorial Museum, Connecticut Women Artists, New Britain Museum, Connecticut Watercolor Society, Six Summit Gallery in Ivoryton, Upstream Gallery in Dobbs Ferry (NY), West Hartford Art League, and the Golden Thread Gallery in West Hartford, as well as the Lyme Academy. Her art has been featured in the exhibit space of the Capitol Building office of the Connecticut Secretary of the State and has also been displayed at the Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Hartford Fine Art in East Hartford, Maple and Main Gallery in Chester, the Gallery at Firehouse Square in New London, and the Copper Beech Institute in West Hartford, as well as a two-person exhibit at the Town and County Club in Hartford. Inspired by the natural world and at the same time exploring the inner world of dreams and imagination, Nan’s work encompasses abstract egg tempera paintings and atmospheric oil paintings, as well as tonal landscape drawings and meticulous graphite and colored-pencil drawings. With a visual vocabulary derived from nature, she strives to embody the way of nature in her own creative process, letting images evolve from within. Her art invites the viewer to enter that process.
