PIQUA — Nancy Shuler, an alumna of Edison Community College with a Fine Arts degree, has donated three pieces of her artwork to the college in May 2015.
Shuler has had solo exhibitions in the region and has sold her artwork nationally. She received acceptance to La Macina di Cresci International Artist Fellowship in Tuscany, Italy by a juried panel and will begin July 2015.
Shuler gives credit for her achievements to faculty and colleagues who have mentored and inspired her. Nancy plans to continue to earn her bachelor and master degree of fine art, teach, and exhibit nationally.
“Edison Community College is a place of warmth, energy, and empowerment that has allowed me to grow professionally and personally. I hope the art will inspire students as I have been inspired,” Shuler said as a response to what inspired her donation.
Shuler has been asked to speak of her Italy residency at the Mayflower Arts Center in Troy, in August.
“There are few artists I’ve worked with who understand the true power of creation as Nancy Shuler,” said Lisa A. Bauer, owner and director of the Mayflower Arts Center. “Her deep love of color, form, space, and texture evokes great emotion in all who study her work. Ms. Shuler’s work expresses pure passion through paint and canvas.”
Shuler’s artwork is on display in the East Hall, Emerson Center, and West Hall of Edison’s Piqua Campus. For more information about her artwork, visit www.nancyshuler.com.
