Nancy Teague Participates In UNL MEDICI Fundraiser



MEDICI 2015, the University of Nebraska Art Department's fundraising event experienced a packed audience on the evening of February 26 2015, at the UNL Eisentrager-Howard Gallery.

This artsy event attracts art collectors from across Nebraska.


In previous years, Medici funding has purchased equipment such as the large electric kiln in Ceramics, a safer table saw and large lathe in the Fabrication Space, cameras, and a large-format vinyl cutter for the Digital Lab.

Last year MEDICI 2014 had a record fundraiser of more than $23,000.  This helped fund a new lighting studio for Photography. This year, MEDICI is planning to help with raw materials (bricks and steel) for its Kiln Construction course and pay for studio upgrades in Painting.

Medici also helps sponsor the UNL Visiting Artists Program, which brings nationally noted artist, scholars and critics to the Lincoln campus.

For the 2015 Medici fundraiser twenty artist had donated major artworks for sale.  Two works of art were available by silent auction - a Dan Howard painting and a glass piece by Omaha's Therman Statom.

In addition, sixty-five artist donated $100 art pieces for purchase.

Nancy Teague Painting In Octagon 2015 National Exhibit





Good news! My painting "Make A Splash" was accepted in the Octagon Center for the Arts National All Media Exhibit in Ames, Iowa.

Make A Splash Acrylic 36x36 (c)Nancy Teague
 This painting reminded me of the spontaneous playfulness of children.

Did you ever jump into a puddle and make a splash when you were little?
Puddles are just waiting to be jumped in by children.
Oh, the vibrant colors of delight that explode in such child-like fun!
Of course mom doesn't think so, knowing that puddles can create stains.

If you dared to jump in, wasn't it fun?
If you saw someone do it, didn't you want to follow suit?
What fun reflections we are made to be. Hence the double splash.

Unfortunately, in our 'grown-up' life
we fall into busy, distracted, or worn out,
so we don't play and make splashes.
This painting is a reminder to play and participate in a part of the fullness of life.
Splash! It does a body good!





Okay, back to the exhibit.

From 323 nation-wide submitted entries the juror selected 65 pieces of artwork for the exhibit. Octagon Center for the Arts' 2015 National Juried All-Media Exhibition will be on display through April 5th.

The juror's comment on the show - "The sheer number of entries in and of itself is a powerful indicator that this competition serves an important role as it gives many artists an opportunity to showcase their work.  I was impressed by the dedication and commitment of all the artists who entered." Juror Pauline Verbeek-Cowart

The opening reception was Friday evening on January 23rd.  The Gallery was packed!

An artsy good night was had by all.

Artist Carol R. Thompson Chosen by Nancy Teague for "Artists Choosing Artists" at The Burkholder Project

The Burkholder Project uses the month of January each year to have its resident artists select outside artists with whom to exhibit side by side.


This year I am delighted to have Carol R. Thompson as my guest artist.

Carol does engagingly serene, elegant, and sometimes humorous still lives. Her striking artwork can be seen at her website, here.

Recently she stretched beyond her still lives and did a wide open landscape. I love the  simplicity of her composition in "Orange Truck". The vastness with 'two passing'  expresses an interesting mixture of loneliness, endurance, and beauty.

Nancy Teague SOLO Show Now Hanging At The Burkholder Project Sept 2-30 2014

What fun it was to hang my Solo Show two days ago. The exhibition space is called the "Skylight Gallery". As it name implies are wonderful skylights in the pitched ceiling. Thus lots of day light fills this room.

There is an opening in the middle of the floor with railings so one can look down at art, or from the first floor look up at art. Pretty sweet!

Here are a few pictures I took with my smart phone. It's difficult to capture the whole show given confines of the hole in the floor. But hopefully you can get the 'feel' of the show.




If you can, please join me at the Opening Reception on September 5th, Friday night 7-9pm. You will be in for a visual treat of spontaneity, playfulness, and intrigue!
