Nanci Worthington: Connections to Place

November 5 – 29, 2017

Nanci Worthington describes her work as a naturalist’s meditation on process, from journal to photo to drawing and painting. Her journals, both written and visual, are a way to translate the visceral experience of her observations in the wilderness. What does it feel like to be a trout lily? What stories do the sounds of the forests make? Can you smell a change in the terrain? If so, how does it change how you see it? Using all of her senses to “see” the natural world around her, she hopes to codify through her art the experience of open perception. An opening reception for the artist will be held on Sunday, November 5th, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm, graciously hosted by the Library Associates.
