Artist donates work


PIQUA — Nancy Shuler, an alumna of Edison Community College with a fine arts degree, has donated three pieces of her artwork to the college.

Shuler has had solo exhibitions in the region and has sold her artwork nationally. She received acceptance to La Macina di Cresci International Artist Fellowship in Tuscany, Italy, by a juried panel and will begin July 2015.

Shuler gives credit for her achievements to faculty and colleagues who have mentored and inspired her. Shuler plans to continue to earn her bachelor and master degree of fine art, teach and exhibit nationally.

When asked what inspired her donation, Shuler responded, “Edison Community College is a place of warmth, energy, and empowerment that has allowed me to grow professionally and personally. I hope the art will inspire students as I have been inspired.”

Shuler has been asked to speak of her Italy residency at the Mayflower Arts Center in Troy, in August.

Lisa A. Bauer, owner and director of the Mayflower Arts Center said, “There are few artists I’ve worked with who understand the true power of creation as Nancy Shuler. Her deep love of color, form, space and texture evokes great emotion in all who study her work. Ms. Shuler’s work expresses pure passion through paint and canvas.”

Shuler artwork is on display in the East Hall, Emerson Center, and West Hall of Edison’s Piqua Campus. For more information about her artwork, visit www.nancyshuler.com.
