ABOUT THE EXHIBIT

Called an inheritor of the Color School (May 2012, DCArtNews, blogspot.com), Nancy Donnelly strives for something like realism, but with respect for abstraction.  Her work, both 3-D and wall-hung, reveals an amused interest in the actual world.  There's at least one joke in this show!

Trained as a painter, Donnelly discovered glass as an art medium a few years ago and realized what a gorgeous and difficult material it is.  Now, she has looked past the beauty of glass and overcome the technical difficulties to focus on the purpose, the narrative, the meaning of art work -- not the decorative qualities but the need to speak about life and the world.

These days she is consciously bringing drawing and painting back into her work, working bigger, and melding glass with other materials, as well as making more art on paper.  She describes her work as "trying and trying to say something without words."
