Nan Hass Feldman The Garden and Beyond: New Painting

APRIL 10 – MAY 4, 2014
Reception April 12, 5 – 7PM 
Artist Talk and Poetry Reading with Alan Feldman
May 3, 5 – 7PM 

Nan Hass Feldman’s paintings, whether oil, acrylic, or mixed media, are stylized, yet recognizable, and vibrantly colorful. Often intricate, playful, enlivening and upbeat, her work focuses on the subjects of interiors and landscapes.

Inspiration for these new paintings comes from the artist’s recent experiences on the Greek island of Skopelos and in the jungle area of Boca de Tomatlan, Mexico. 
Nan Hass Feldman’s paintings evoke a child-like joy, and yet a more sophisticated appreciation of the possibilities of seeing a subject endlessly – through vibrant color, pattern, texture, and imagination.

Framingham artist Nan Has Feldman has had countless solo exhibitions throughout her distinguished career.  Her work is in numerous corporate and university collections, as well as in the collections of the Danforth Museum and in private collections in France, England, Italy, Spain, Japan, and Sweden. She teaches at Danforth Art and the Worcester Art Museum, as well as in Europe and Mexico, and paints in her studio at Fenway Studios in Boston.

In conjunction with the exhibit, a Poetry Reading with Alan Feldman, along with a talk by the artist, will be held May 3, from 5 – 7 PM. Alan Feldman, an award-winning poet, will read from his newly published chapbook Flowers in Wartime, a collection of 28 short poems written during the opening months of the Iraq war. A signed limited edition of Flowers in Wartime , illustrated with six paintings by Nan Hass Feldman, will be available for purchase,  with all proceeds to benefit the scholarship fund at Danforth/Art.
