Winner of the 2016 Nonesuch Art of Paper L’Usine de papier Award for the most creative paper construction for her work Nectar, Nancy Agati is an artist living and working in Philadelphia.  She is currently in Parrsboro for a Nonesuch Art Residency and, in addition to working on her on projects, is offering Carving The Sea, a Community Art Project which invites public participation.

NECTAR
Nancy Agati

The tools and materials Nancy uses tend to change piece by piece depending on the concept of the work. Most often she leans toward finding objects from nature to lead the way for a project. Natural materials that inspire her include vines, mica, birch bark, driftwood, wasp nests, seed pods, insect trails et cetera.

 

 

Along with making artwork, Nancy is employed as a studio art instructor.

Carving the Sea is a Community Art Project which invites the public to participate in creating a large carving that can then be used as a relief sculpture and/or a block from which to create a print.  Nancy has brought along tools to allow participation of 10-12 people at a time.  If you would like to participate, please send an email to fun@hmsnonesuch.comPASSERSBY ARE ALSO WELCOME TO PARTICIPATE so you may also come by Main & Station on Saturday 12 August to just watch or to join in as space and tools allow.
