Join us at Butterfield Garage during First Friday Art Walk for Artist Talk with October’s featured artist Nancy Hamlin-Vogler. A diverse 2-dimensional artist, Nancy works in her backyard studio near the Fountain of Youth. Her work will be featured for the entire month. On Saturday, October 6 at 2:00pm, she’ll be giving an artist demonstration.
Nancy began her greeting card company, Eastern Sun Printworks, while taking printmaking classes during graduate school, where she earned an M.A. in French Literature. Infatuated with the silkscreen printing process, she began designing greeting cards, and printed each one by hand. Thirty-five years later, her iconic card images are sold in stores nationwide and sought after by greeting card aficionados. The images have been converted to digital format and are now professionally printed with archival pigmented inks. Her designs have received five Louie Finalist awards.
Nancy’s passion for contemporary art is evident in her more recent works on paper, rendering still life, figurative and landscape subjects in her signature intuitive, observational, gestural style, where she uses her favorite materials: acrylics, charcoal, pastels and pasted rice paper elements. The abstracted content of her work reflects her worldwide backpacking travels, summer vacations in Cape Cod and Maine, and her studies in Buddhism.
Recently, Nancy received a Best of Show award in the Not So Still Life show. Her work can also be viewed at Plum Gallery, 10 Aviles Street.
