Nancy Purington, an Iowa City-based artist, grew up in Iowa along the banks of the Mississippi River and has always lived in close proximity to bodies of water. Water has been the primary subject matter of her work for over 30 years. This exhibition included works in a variety of media – from miniature prints and collages to large-scale paintings. Many of the works incorporate metals like gold, silver, and palladium, making reference to the reflective qualities of water. This traveling exhibition was organized by Waterloo Center for the Arts and Muscatine Art Center. A catalog is available for sale.
