Work by Davidson artist Nancy Marshburn is on display this month in the rotunda at Davidson Town Hall, 216 S. Main St. A free reception for “Nancy Marshburn: Oils & Pastels” is planned this Friday, Nov. 16, 5-7pm, at Town Hall.
Meanwhile, an exhibit of photos of Cornelius opens with a reception Thursday, Nov. 15, at Aquesta Bank. Details below.
The show is on view weekdays through Dec. 4, 8am to 5pm.
Ms. Marshburn’s work includes landscapes, pastoral scenes, still-lifes and surprising images, like the close-up of a piano keyboard that was selected for display in the recent Pastel Society of America annual show in New York. Trained as a medical illustrator, her style is described as “contemporary realism.” Her paintings show the freshness, intensity and luminosity allowed with the pastel medium.
She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in art and biology from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and spent a year in Wales on a Rotary International Scholarship studying medical photography. She attended the Medical College of Georgia, completing a Master of Science in Medical Art in 1984. After working as a freelance medical illustrator for over 20 years, she returned to her fine art roots.
Ms. Marshburn’s work has been exhibited and received awards in numerous regional and national juried competitions. Inspired by the ordinary, Nancy’s art focuses on a moment of beauty in a complex world.
