Deadline: Saturday, November 13, 2021 (11:59pm)
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
WSG and Studio Gallery are collaborating on an exhibition to pay tribute to Nancy Frankel (1929 – 2021), a beloved artist, teacher and member of the community. We invite artists who knew Nancy or were influenced by her work and life to submit to this non-juried call. The theme, Organic Geometry is inspired by a quote from Nancy:
.
“I use organic geometry to give form to my love of nature and architecture. My work has been a long meditation, an effort to get past the surface aspects of reality, to find deeper meaning.” –Nancy Frankel
