About Face: The Gallery at Unity
Each human face is unique and that's how we recognize each other. Nancy has been fascinated with how to create simplified faces. How simple can the lines and shapes be and still recognizable as a human face. She studied the art of Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee, Van Gogh and others who've done the same thing, sometimes only using only lines. The results of her studies are produced in fabric, commercial and ethnic, and thread with a unique use of embellishments. Exhibit is ongoing now thru Sept 17.
Vacation Bible School
