The SOBA Gallery is excited to start the new year by introducing Nancy Vineburgh as the January Featured Artist with her show “Contemporary Impressionism” and reception on Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017 from 3-5 p.m.
Appropriate for a fresh new year as the work to be displayed is lively and carefree, characterized by colorful, quick brushstrokes. This exhibit represents Nancy’s artistic journey for the past two years and is sure to delight with lovely paintings inspired by our Lowcountry surroundings. The local ornamental grasses fascinate Nancy and her canvas, ‘Penelope’s Pink Muhly Grass’ is the centerpiece of this, her first one-person show.
Working in acrylics, Nancy initially favored using a palette knife having studied with Jim Lewis. Examples of this technique include ‘Granddaughter’s World’ and two paintings, “White Linen” and “Footprints.” She attributes her evolving style as a contemporary impressionist to Ted Jordan’s open painting class at the Art League Academy on Hilton Head. According to Nancy, Ted creates an “environment of unconditional love,” which has catapulted her growth and harnessed her passion for painting.
A resident of Bluffton for nearly 10 years, Nancy is a member of SOBA and the Hilton Head Art League. She also founded the Belfair Art League. She is deeply grateful to the entire arts community in our area whose fellowship and encouragement have contributed to her growth.
Please join us in greeting Nancy, enjoy her beautiful show and the work of over 100 other member artists. The opening reception which includes refreshments on January 8 and the show will be on display from Jan. 2-Feb. 5, 2017. For more information visit sobagallery.com or call (843) 757-6586.
