What a wonderful story about a fabulous artist! Nancy Coleman is amazing. Her work is truly unique. It is layers of color and story and emotion. There is an order to her work which aids us in appreciating the richness of her images and the timelessness of each piece. They are both formal and wild. They are NEW to the world of photography and each is a poem in visual form. Thank you Nancy for sharing your vision.

I have one of Nancy Coleman's pieces, "Great Expectations," hanging by my bed. Each morning I look at the vibrant roses and decaying lilies, and am reminded of the thrilling possibility, but also the inevitable passage, of time. Coleman's work can be beautiful and is always arresting, but more than that it serves a purpose-- it makes you think, feel, and observe carefully. For your own sake, GO to this show, and bring your wallet.
