The Leslie Wolfe Gallery
Across the Seas
Nancie King Mertz
The Leslie Wolfe Gallery is proud to present the Paintings of Nancie King Mertz. An award-winning artist, Nancie has spent her lifetime painting in oil & pastel. She has traveled to over 20 countries for inspiration, although Chicago remains her favored city to paint. Known as a Cityscape Painter, over 70% of her work is “plein air” (painted on-site) with this being her preferred method to work. In Plein air, all elements & experience of the environment become a part of the piece in the artist’s memory.
Since 1987, Nancie has resided in Lincoln Park/Lakeview, but she travels the US and overseas to instruct and paint. In May of 2020 she will be the Guest of Honor in Giverny, France, with an exhibition of her work and a two-day workshop. She is on the Faculty of the Plein Air Convention, Plein Air South, IAPS, & served three years on the faculty of Eastern IL University. Visit her website for additional information.
