Delightful Seasons - A Retrospective of Watercolors by Nancy Cox
May 4th through June 2nd
The library pleased to be hosting the beautiful artwork of area resident, Nancy Cox. Nancy is a professional fine artist working in various mediums but most often in watercolor, oil and cut paper collage.
“I am fortunate to live and work at my studio in the countryside. My particular piece of Wisconsin is the beautiful Driftless area west of Madison in Vermont Township. The singular and sweet beauty I find here is a primary source of inspiration, but I am influenced by natural beauty in all its forms. This continues to be a central focus in my work.”
Nancy is a graduate of the American Academy of Art in Chicago. She sells her work through galleries, special exhibits, and on her website www.nancycoxartwork.com, and does custom artwork on commission.
Nancy’s work is widely collected nationally and internationally in private and corporate collections.
