NANCY HAMLIN-VOGLER presents BACKYARD STUDIO KITCHEN, a new series of mixed media paintings
March 5@1:00 pm-March 31@9:00 pm
Featured throughout March at Butterfield Garage. The artist will be present on Friday, March 5th , from 1-7 and will lead a demo/Q&A on the gallery portico on Saturday, March 20th from 1-4 pm.
During the past year’s isolation, Nancy became immersed in a still life series, in which studio ephemera and her environment appear in diverse contexts: abstracted, realistic, within an imagined location. Hamlin-Vogler treats her subjects intriguingly, mixing her favorite materials – paints, pastels, collage, and recycled silkscreens – often leaving the viewer hanging by a thread yet satisfied with multiple possibilities.
Nancy’s artistic life has flowed in a series of interesting transitions. While in graduate school to continue her studies in French Literature, she became enthralled with silkscreen printing after taking a printmaking class at the University of Maine. She designed a colorful series of fine art cards, later to become the trademark images for her greeting card company, Eastern Sun Printworks. Upon earning her M.A., she left Maine and the USA for a backpacking trip around the world. During those profound two and a half years, the traveler kept written and painted journals, collected kitchen utensils and fabrics from many countries and gathered a wealth of experience to enrich her life’s journey and fuel her creative resources. Her career as a fine artist had thus begun.
In 2020, Nancy was recognized with an Art Ventures grant from The Community Foundation of Northeast FL, to explore and reinterpret the contemporary still life genre. Follow her creative journey on her website: www.nancyhamlinvogler.com
