Art Center Gallery presents Nancy Diessner

Nancy on Soapbox All I want is to be the river though I return again and again to the clouds
The Art Center Gallery at Anna Maria College presents Nancy Diessner; All I want is to be the river though I return again and again to the clouds from Wednesday, February 20th through Friday, April 12th. Nancy Diessner lives and works on an old farm property in an historical area of Metro-West, Massachusetts. Her work can be found at Bromfield Gallery in Boston. She remains a core faculty member of Zea Mays Printmaking in Northampton, Massachusetts, and runs Dog's Eye Print Studio, specializing in platemaking and printing. Diessner employs photography, printmaking, paper casting, collage and an intimate knowledge of boat construction in her latest body of work. These boat-forms, which look like thin, pointy arches, relate physically and emotionally to the liminal spaces she finds herself in while sculling.

The exhibit consists of these constructions as well as a myriad of small prints, which hint at the river shore, trees, and ocher sites experienced from the seat of her boat. All I want is to be the river though I return again and again to the clouds presents Diessner's investigation of duality, allowing the viewer to plumb the nuances of experience and observation along with the artist.
The exhibition of a guest artist each semester exposes students, the college, and community to a diverse range of contemporary art. An accompanying catalog further explores the artist's work and will be available for sale at the Opening. All are invited to attend the Opening Reception on Wednesday, February 20 from 5:00 - 7:00 pm, which features a discussion between Nancy Diessner and Gallery Director Darrell Matsumoto.
