As you can see some of my 8x8s 'go together', but they could also show solo. Lots of ways to mix them up!

These 8x8 go on public display in the Nancy Teague Gallery located at The Burkholder Project in Lincoln, NE (719 P Street) starting October 1st.

For a soon to happen enjoyable evening outing:

Nancy Teague Featured On

What a wonderful surprise to find my artwork highlighted on Empty Artists can submit their work but it does not mean it will be featured.

A big thank you to Cassie Rief for her encouraging critique!

Below is a copy of her write up.

Nancy Teague: Colorfully Expressive Acrylic Abstracts

"Nancy Teague’s impressionistic paintings are reflections of a fleeting moment or fanciful thought. Her loose, carefree style has garnered many awards and gained her acceptance in several prestigious art fairs, including the Cherry Creek Art Festival in Denver and the Coconut Grove Art Festival in Miami.

Beach Fronts is a great example of the moments Nancy captures in her abstract paintings. You can see lovely hints of a sultry day at sea, as long piers jet out into the crystal clear deep like mirages in a desert and buoys ride the gently lapping waves.

The colors Nancy picked to depict the ocean is bright and cool—perfectly reflecting the sea’s qualities. Haphazard, multi-colored squiggles are etched into the horizon, creating additional movement that complements her spontaneous paint strokes.

Moving from water to land, when I view City Parks, below, I see it as if I am in an airplane, high above the ground. Clouds cover part of the scenery, and the only thing higher is a sliver of blue sky, which you can see on the horizon.

A dazzling display of various greens peek out through the clouds, brightening the entire painting. It’s easy to imagine people strolling lazily through the park, jogging, or walking their dogs on a beautiful summer day.

As for this final painting, in her blog, Nancy say’s Blues Band

will move you with color and rhythm, and I have to agree. I love the complimentary blue and orange hues that create their own “bluesy” energy. Sections are carved out of the strip of blue in the middle of the painting, and it’s easy to imagine individual musical instruments, like a drum set or oboe, filling the empty space. The orange patterns above look like individuals in the band—I can’t help but visualize them grooving along to their music as the crowd listens in delight."

"Ice Breaker", along with forty two other 1970-1973 UNL Artist Alums, at the Eisentrager-Howard Gallery, through August 7, 2015.

The Opening Reception had a great turn out of artists and art aficionados. Pete Pinnel, Professor UNL Department of Art, spearheads these Alum Exhibits. He gave an informative talk about his vision for these Alum Exhibits. What a great idea Pete!

Professor Pinnel also shared that many past and present UNL Art Professors will be present at the Closing Reception on August 7th. He said, "Be sure and attend the Closing!" Mark your calendar. Mine is.

This Exhibit can be viewed Monday-Friday between 8am-5pm. Admission is free. The Eisentrager-Howard gallery is located on the first floor of Richards Hall (one block east of 10th and T Street Lincoln, NE).
