Kent State Alumna Nancy Seibert to Exhibit Paintings at Kent State University School of Art Downtown Art GalleryPosted Jun. 14, 2011
The Kent State University School of Art’s Downtown Gallery is pleased to present Life Force: Paintings by Nancy Seibert. The exhibition will be on display from June 29 to July 30, with a reception open to the public on Thursday, June 30, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Downtown Gallery. The gallery, located at 141 E. Main St. in Kent, is open Wednesdays through Fridays from noon to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“Nancy Seibert's philosophy of art involves a synergy of paint and energy produced in brushstrokes reflecting a certain rhythm in nature,” said Anderson Turner, director of galleries for the School of Art at Kent State. “Nature is the source of her inspiration as she molds oils, pastels, acrylics and canvas in masterful works of art.”
Seibert began her art studies in Washington, D.C., at George Washington University. She graduated from Kent State earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Master of Fine Arts. Seibert spent three years living in Japan, teaching art and gaining valuable experience in Japanese calligraphy. During this experience, she began to sense a feeling for space and mark-making in her artwork.
Nancy Seibert is a resident of both Ohio and Florida, and has displayed her works in numerous exhibitions in both states.
