Nancy Bell Scott. Peacemaker         Nancy Bell Scott. Getting Warm

The GALLERY-POSTS are an ongoing scrolling exhibit of my artwork, mostlynancy bell scott. sweet dreams for 7 years abstract collage since 2006.

These works reflect a longtime love of books, music, letters, history, color, paint, asemics, texture, ink, and rust, sometimes including unexpected found materials from the ground.  Exploration.

Recently, exhibiting in formal regional galleries hasn’t been a main focus or purpose.  I enjoy my freedom and studio work immensely, as well as communicating, collaborating, and showing with artists from many countries.

Several years ago I came across the International Union of Mail Artists (IUOMA), which, through the ongoing exchange of mail art, has meant participating in a global community of imaginative artists of all kinds, discovering new ways of working, and exhibiting both online and locally around the world.

*All book materials used in my work are from old dilapidated volumes headed for recycling or already thrown away.*
