ART News:
Betty Nance Smith of Los Alamos was invited to show her painting, Abundant Spring, in the Oil Painters of America Virtuosos Exhibition for the month of March in St. Augustine, Fla.
Signature and Master Signature members were invited, whose status comes from juried National and Regional OPA exhibitions, plus a consistently good portfolio. Smith joined nationally and Internationally known painters at Cutter and Cutter Fine Art in St. Augustine, Fla., for the crowded opening, Master painter demonstration and exploration of beautiful, historic St. Augustine.
Two generations of Cutter’s make their space welcoming, elegant and spacious. They even have the advantage of individual dimmable lighting for each piece to mimic different times of the day.
Internationally known Master painter Daniel Greene judged the show and told the group it was a very difficult task. Nance Smith said the artists were very non-competitive and supportive of each other.
Nance Smith is a native of Los Alamos, who began her career as a wildlife artist, then switched to studio painting while she raised her daughters. Her local representation is historic La Poada De Santa Fe, (curator Sara Eyestone, 505.577.4991). She also shows in Castle Gallery in Ft. Wayne, Ind.
