Detail, TREE TRAILS by Nancy Baur Dillen
By PAM HARBAUGH
One of my fave area artists is NANCY BAUR DILLEN. When you first meet her, you’ll experience someone with quiet confidence. But take a look at her art and you sense a soul exploding with intense imagination.
Indeed, her art breathes with color and technique and invites you to take a whimsical ride that always excites, no matter how many times you may have viewed it.
See for yourself in “Visual Poems: Paintings by Nancy Dillen,” a mini-retrospective of Nancy’s works. It is on view through March 15, 2019 in the Garden House Welcome Center at the Harry P. Leu Gardens in Orlando.
The exhibit comprises 17 works from her celebrated series known as “Water Circus,” “Woodchuck” and “Other Landscapes.”
