If you have not thought to stop by the Visitor’s Gallery in the Administrative Services Building on the NSU Broken Arrow campus lately, you may want to schedule a visit. For the month of September, the artwork of Nancy S. Harkins will be on display (upstairs and downstairs).
While born in the “show me” state, Nancy moved to Oklahoma at an early age (seven) and learned early on that she had an aptitude for drawing and painting (she was accepting portrait commissions by the time she was sixteen). Watercolor seems to be her medium of choice. She paints landscapes, flowers, and architectural scenes. Two of her botanical iris paintings have been published in the book The Best of Flower Painting. And, the American Iris Society also chose her designs for their first commemorative poster.
Of her work, Nancy says “for me, the beauty of creation requires a response — even an involvement — that compels me to explore with eye and brush the shapes, contrasts, and moods so lovingly arranged by our Creator.”
So, stop by, visit the exhibit, enjoy the fine watercolor paintings, and see what treasures you can’t live without.
