The challenge of selecting artworks was embraced by our juror Angelica Arbelaez as she curated a show from the over 300 entries to make the final selection of 67 pieces, ” Nancy K Turrell, executive director, tells The Rickie Report.

“Mandarin Duck” by Nancy Tilles

In the past, Nancy has enjoyed exhibiting her paintings in outdoor festivals throughout South Florida including Artigras, Sunfest, Artsfest of Stuart, Naples Art Fair, Jupiter Art Fest by the Sea and many others. Her paintings have represented Artsfest of Stuart and Jupiter Art Fest for posters and promotion. Influenced by living in tropical South Florida for over 30 years, Nancy has been lauded for the rich use of color in her art, and teaches painting to adults in Palm Beach Gardens. There, she shares her love of painting with her students.

“Adam and Eve” by Nancy Tilles

“For fifteen years I enjoyed participating in outdoor art festivals where I got the chance to meet so many nice and interesting people. I made a conscience decision to stop exhibiting in this way when I downsized from a large home to a small villa. No longer could I have the luxury of working on three large paintings at the same time. My canvases shrunk from hiding me when I carried them to various small sizes that could fit on a bookshelf, Nancy explains”.

“That also sparked a change in my subject matter. Although I loved painting fantastical scenes of underwater life, I had exhausted much of my inspirations and really just wanted to concentrate on painting from real life. I joined a life drawing group and paint from a model with them, once a week. I believe it is making me a better painter and teacher”, Nancy tells us.

Nancy shares,”Over the past year, I have painted many smaller paintings. This show represents some of the work I have done this year minus the paintings created with a live model . The subject matter is still evolving. I am excited to share my paintings with you and looking forward to hearing your thoughts”
