Art Move Issue Ten Reviews Nancy Teague Abstracts

Good news - may artwork was reviewed in Art Move Magazine!

J. Fatima Martins, Editor-At-Large & Social Media at Art Move, did an insightful review of my art journey and abstracts.

One of the featured abstracts - "Thinking About It" 8x8 Acrylic  Nancy Teague

Below is an excerpt from the review, "Nancy Teague's Creative Liberation":

“…Through the freedom of deconstructing real objects into abstracted forms and experimenting with chaotic gestures and clashing color juxtapositions, she’s moved from being earthbound and tied to painting with precise rules to being sky-bound and interpreting the world from a more vague and open-minded, liberating perspective…Her paintings, therefore, communicate the important tension between letting go and holding on. This creative anxiety is translated into beautiful, loose-edged blocks of engaging colors and indeterminate lines that act within the painting as a type of writing, transforming the compositions into indefinite visual poetry. There’s an abundance of spontaneity, calming void or rest space, spatial depth, and physical texture, as well as dance-like movement, but all the activity is systematic and prudent…”

Besides hard copies available in Lincoln, the full magazine is now available Online here.

Art Move Issue Ten is loaded with other featured articles, including a powerful testimony (page 18) by the originator and Owner of this publication. Sara Kovanda, a multi-talented artist-musician-writer, shares her gripping story that should bring hope to many who have been deeply wounded from abuse. Her journey is one of darkness but culminates in rebounding and flourishing. A remarkable woman!

Additional articles include topics on musicians, poets, Surrealist Nolan Tredway, comedy, human interests, and food. The food topic was of special interest to me because it is about a chocolate!

Rebecca Ankenbrand, chocolatier, is owner of Sweet Minou Chocolate in Lincoln, NE. She is into nothing but the best decadent chocolate. To read more about her unique business check out page 10 in Art Move Issue Ten .  You can also find Sweet Minou Chocolate on Facebook.

A big thank you to J. Fatima Martins and Art Move for featuring my abstracts! And thank you Art Move for your unique support of the Arts in Lincoln, NE.

Still Point Gallery Not Easy Being Green Competition Includes Nancy Teague

Here's some fun news! My work was accepted to be part of Still Point Gallery's online themed competition - "It's Not Easy Being Green". What a theme!

If you love the color green, have thought it is not easy being green, or wonder what artists come up with focusing on green, then check out this unique work.

One of my paintings, "Bucolic", is featured on the top bar of images on the main page - fourth one to the right.

Still Point Arts Quarterly, a high quality art and literature publication, will feature these 'green works', in their upcoming Spring 2017 ~ Issue No. 25. To purchase go here.

Here are my pieces that are part of Still Point Gallery's 'green' competition.

"Over Yonder"  8x8 Acrylic on Canvas  ©Nancy Teague

I'm not sure why some would think it's not easy being green, unless it has to do with the phrase "being green with envy". Talk about an unhappy place!

But, I love green. In fact, I can't wait for green to start popping up everywhere in my area. I am ready to be done with winter - browns and grays.

Come on GREEN! This color is also symbolic of new life, new beginnings, wholeness, and healing. Here's wishing you lots of good green in your life.

How I Painted KSU CBA Diptcyh Commission

I always enjoy seeing how an artist does a piece of work. So here goes for you to see how I painted the diptych commission for Kansas State University College of Business Administration's new building.

This diptych (two paintings) will hang in the CBA Executive Conference Room. The following two images give you an idea of the location.

What a blessing, in many ways!
