February Artist of the Month 2015: Nancy Caffall

Feb 2015 paintingBorn and raised in Manhattan Ms. Caffall grew up immersed in the exhibits of
New York’s greatest museums, playing in the world of Egyptian pharaohs to
tilting with medieval knights at the Metropolitan to wondering at the
immensity of the Turner skies at the Frick and the world of modern art at
MOMA and the Guggenheim.

Since 2012 Ms. Caffall has shown her work in group shows with the EAG at the
Easthampton Lathrop Community and Cooley-Dickinson Hospital. She has
participated in the Small Works shows at the Easthampton Community Arts Plus
and at the Plein Air competition at the Nash Gallery, sponsored by the ECA+,
annually. In July 2013 she was in a 3 women show at the Easthampton Lathrop
Community and two group shows with the EAG at Lathrop in 2013 and 2014.

Her watercolor paintings are an amalgam of her unexpectedly varied life
experiences which spans living in environments from urban New York to the
rural Berkshires, to the small towns, farmlands and 5 Colleges of the
Pioneer Valley, to the Connecticut shores along the Long Island Sound, to
the Atlantic shores of Cape Cod and the Maine coast near Booth Bay,
Southport and Monhegan Island.
