A painter for nearly fifty years, Nancy Lindsay is best known for her impressionist landscapes. She loves to paint on location and packs her easel whenever she travels. Recently she has been inspired by her father’s photography from the 1920’s and 30’s. The painting in this exhibition is of her mother reading at a desk somewhere around 1928 in Brule, Nebraska. The Maxfield Parrish painting and brass lamp has been in her family for many years and now in her personal collection.
Nancy Lindsay’s work can be found in many corporate and private collections as well as the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art. She received her art instruction at Colorado State University and Art Students League in New York. She works from her studio near Stone City, Iowa.
