Nancy Purington - Ode to the Upper Mississippi River, Pearl and Her Mother

Wednesday, September 26, 2018

ODE TO THE UPPER MISSISSIPPI RIVER, PEARL AND HER MOTHER Exhibition by Nancy Purington Historic Musser McColm Home Second Floor Luminous colors, studied textures, and repeating patterns are Nancy Purington’s tools for expressing the ever changing moods of the Mississippi River. A self-described student of the mighty river, Purington’s works are meditations on the Mississippi’s moments of calm, bursts of overwhelming brightness, slow drifts of murky fog, and clashes at the confluence. Oils and precious metals are combined to capture golden and silver reflections against a background of mystic dark navies, satin backs, emerald blues, and pools of white. Purington places the viewer on the water’s edge, ready to make either a peaceful passage or a dramatic battle down river to the gulf. Purington’s work, like the river, has the ability to transport.
