Nancy Bowron is a fervent lover of textiles, color, and texture. This Nashville resident creates still lifes and semi-abstractions using collage with hand painted papers and various water media (acrylic, watercolors, and inks). She puts a fresh twist on a cluster of flowers, a rooster, a girl playing a guitar, and more.
Her work is on display at the Spring Hill Public Library during the month of November and on Saturday, Nov. 10, at 1 p.m. Nancy will teach participants how to make hand-painted paper out of wax paper normally used to divide hamburgers and line cookie sheets.
Nancy used to be a knitter and worked in two knit shops. She designed as well, and one of her patterns is featured in the nationally published book “101 Designer One-Skein Wonders.” However, a shoulder injury forced her to put the needles aside. Her creative course changed with her husband’s gift of painting classes.
Nancy has since studied under local artists Paul Proctor, Hazel King, Lee Hamblen, Mildred Jarrett, and Dorsey McHugh. She has taken workshops with Gerald Brommer, Edie Maney, and Jan Batts. Nancy has been juried into the Central South Art Exhibition.
Her work has been exhibited at The Renaissance Center in Dickson, Tennessee. She also exhibits new works monthly at the Tennessee Art League (TAL), where she is an active artist member.
She teaches a weekend workshop with award winning artist Jan Batts on exploring your creativity, offered locally at Plaza Art in Nashville.
