Current Exhibition: Nancy Lewis
March – April, 2018
Nancy Lewis, a regional artist, has been an instructor at Colorado Mesa University, Colorado Institute of Art, Arapahoe Community College, and the Professional Training. Nancy has been teaching people new graphic skills for over 25 years. She shares her artistic insights to using color, visual elements of art, and design concepts through exploration and experimentation.
Nancy’s life-long connection with nature’s beauty is evidenced by the colors, textures, and composition she brings to her work.
“I believe art stimulates curiosity and thought and allows us to connect, consciously or subconsciously, with our emotions and memories.” Nancy explains.
Nancy currently resides in Palisade, Colorado, where the magnificent high-desert vistas, colorful vineyards, and the Western Grrand Valley provide her ample opportunity to indulge in her love of Plein Air painting. Nancy can often be found painting in the shadow of the Colorado Monument, along the shores of the Colorado river, in the vineyards of Palisade, or on the sidewalks overlooking the hustle and bustle of Grand Valley’s farmers markets.
