Opening Reception: Friday, September 16 from 6pm to 8pm
Artist printmaker Nancy Previs has for many years been observing and recording nature’s forms, textures and tones. She is fascinated by subtleties in light and color and draws her inspiration from nature’s ability to generate beauty from what seem spontaneous and random processes.
Her show, Urban Nature: from Dublin to DC, at The Corner Store, is inspired by the living natural world in two cities she knows well: Washington DC and Dublin, Ireland.
“Even in an urban setting, elements of nature are all around us, quietly enhancing our days, energizing our lives,” she says.
The artist etches aluminum and solar plates, which she then uses to create her richly-textured, multi-plate (intaglio and relief) limited edition prints.
Nancy lives in Dublin, Ireland and makes regular trips to here. Her work has featured in shows in Ireland, the UK and the US.
The Corner Store is located at 900 South Carolina Avenue SE. For more information visit cornerstorearts.org.
