Determined to Soar in the Milliken Art Gallery will showcase Nancy Corbin’s latest body of work focusing on the resilient and collaborative nature of women. The series began with the study of female torsos and evolved into imagery fueled by protests about water rights, women’s marches, immigration policy and the me too movement. With watercolor, pastel, printmaking, and collage, color and line, harmony and movement visually evoke supple synergy for the exhibition.
Corbin studied visual art, arts education, and arts administration at Banff School for Fine Arts, University of Cincinnati (BFA), Savannah College of Art and Design, The Hemlock Studio, Arrowmont School for Art and Craft, University of South Carolina (MA), Wild Acres Retreat, New York University, The Creativity Workshop, and Converse College. She taught 14 years with Spartanburg County School District Seven and 27 years at Spartanburg Day School. Corbin says, “I am currently transitioning from being a teacher who paints to a painter who exhibits.”
Determined to Soar will open on February 6 , 2020. Corbin will present a Gallery Talk on February 27th at 6:00pm in the gallery followed by a closing reception from 6:30-8:00pm.
