Does watercolor call to you? Its immediacy and luminosity appeal. The
mysteries of working in this most fluid of mediums will be made clear
with instruction in technique and approach, examples from Art History,
teacher demos and practice in the field. Each participant's interests and goals for the week will be addressed and respected.
Nancy Glassman's painterly work in watercolor and in oil, focuses on light and the nuances of seasonal change. She celebrates life through shapes and color relationships, and plays with pattern and rhythm, to make order out of chaos. Responding to life through painting is both an expression of reverence and an act of subversiveness.One of Caldbeck's inaugural artists, she has had solo shows here, and at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, The State House, Augusta, ME, the libraries of Belfast and Portland, and has been in group shows throughout the state, such as the L.C. Bates museum, in Hinckley, and "away." Glassman studied art at the University of Pennsylvania, with Rackstraw Downes, and at Sarah Lawrence College, in Bronxville, N.Y. In 2009, she received the Harlow Gallery First Place award. Her paintings are in many public and private collections, including Colby College, Soviet Peace Committee, Russia, MBNA Foundation, Eastern Maine Medical Center, Waldo County Hospital, and Portland High School. She has taught Art to every age group, from toddlers to Elderhostel, for 25 years at the Farnsworth Art Museum, and with the ME Arts Commission's Visiting Artist Program. She travels as a consultant with the Early stARTS Program of the Muskie Center, USM. Nancy's work can seen on the Caldbeck Gallery website.
