We could all use a good dose of happiness these days, not only from the sour economy, world conflict and turmoil, rising unemployment… OK, I said I was going to talk about happiness, right? So yes, we could all use a good helping.
And that’s where Nancy Herrington comes in. Her exhibit, opening Jan. 17 at the Queenstown Gallery in Hopewell, is titled Under Closer Examination: Happiness — I like it! Works in acrylic, oil and ink examine her sources of serenity and pleasure — yay!!!
“My most recent body of work, ‘Under Closer Examination: Happiness,’ is focused on personal sources of peace and enjoyment. Particularly poignant aspects of my life experience are primary sources for my art work, but I ultimately feel they are universal moments in which we all share,” says the artist, who has exhibited at Princeton University’s New Media Center and the Mariboe Gallery at the Peddie School in Hightstown. She has used diverse media such as photography, sound, text and performance, in addition to painting and drawing, to connect with her audiences.
