Nan Wilson, Green Piece, 1992, oil on canvas, 78 x 96 inches Courtesy of the artist


From August 28 – November 14, 2010 – Sioux City Art Center

Nan Wilson’s last one-person exhibition at the Art Center was 30 years ago. Since then, her artistic skill has grown…and so has the size of her artworks. Until now, her work has not received as much exposure or recognition as it has deserved. This major exhibition includes works that she, currently assistant professor and chairperson of the department of art at Briar Cliff University, has created during the last 25 years. Her work is ambitious, personal, and intense in its forms and style, reflecting an adventurous life that has taken her across the country, and a gentle, generous spirit that always brings her back to teaching.
