Art Opening at Sunflower Studio featuring Nancy Busch
Friday, Aug 13; 5 pm – 9 pm (Opening Reception)
Aug 13 – Sept 10 (Exhibit)
Sunflower Studio & Gallery, 214 E. Jones Ave.
As a child, Nancy was forever creating from items she found in nature
and materials around the house. Pennsylvania apple-head dolls, rag style
purses, paintings on board, painting an oil land and seascape on the
clock dial of her grandfather’s antique grandfather clock were the
beginnings of her life-long affair with art. Her apprenticeship in art
continues as she grows as an artist always looking for another challenge
and new mediums to explore – still creating from items found in nature
and materials around the house. Her work includes sculpture, murals,
jewelry and painting. (919) 570-0765. http://www.sunflowerstudiowf.com
