While 2018 is wrapping up, we'd like to inform you of future events and exciting dates for 2019. What's better than kicking off a new year with a packed schedule?!
Starting early in January, Nancy's artwork is going to be up in a solo show at Gallery Studio Oh in Ravenswood!
There will be an opening reception for "Frankly Mine" on January 4th, 2019 from 6-9pm and the show is up through the 15th of February.
The next string of shows for Nancy will be a part of the amazingly profound project called The Art of Influence: Breaking Criminal Traditions. This traveling group art exhibition was created by Cheryl Jefferson, Richard Laurent, and curated by Nancy's art friend and curator Chuck Gniech. Here's how they met:
Nancy and David were walking in the small town of Three Oaks, MI many years ago on its one main street with lots of shops and galleries. The two walked into a gallery and Nancy gave the gallery attendant her business card. They exited and were down the street when they were halted by the sound of Chuck calling out to Nancy. Turns out, Nancy and Chuck had spoken before about working together and he hadn't gotten back to her yet. They were in the right place at the right time and Chuck later got her a show at the Illinois Institute of Art Chicago at Gallery 180. Nancy became involved with Breaking Criminal Traditions a while back, has done several shows with them, and is excited to have some coming up.!
This special show travels around the country showing groupings of art by the 23+ artists involved and curated to fit the theme of the project. Each show is different. Breaking Criminal Traditions itself is a social justice art exhibition that utilizes art to draw awareness to human rights violations that impact millions of females around the world.
The first BCT show will take place at Deerfield High School Gallery on January 10th, 2019 . The opening reception is happening from 5:30-7:00 PM. The show's run will end on March 7th, 2019.
The second Breaking Criminal Traditions exhibition takes place at The Gallery at Penn College of Pennsylvania College of Tech in Williamsport, Pennsylvania on January 15th through February 28th. We're talking to you, East Coasters;)
Nancy has a painting in the Evanston Art Center 2019 Student Show, as she has been a student (and teacher) there since she was sixteen! Once a student, always a student. ;) The show is up from January 5th- February 9th, an opening reception will be held on Sunday January 13th from 1pm-4pm .
We hope you can make it out to one of the many openings or shows for next year!!
Last but NOT least, we present to you the Season 5 Promo of GRACE AND FRANKIE which airs on January 18th!!!!
Hope y'all have a safe and Happy New Year! We’d love to see you at the studio in 2019!! If you ever want to schedule an appointment to drop by, please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
