Nelsbach, Clarke exhibit fine art
Tenants Harbor — The Jackson Memorial Library in Tenants Harbor announces an exhibition of fine art by St. George artists Hannah Nelsbach and Len Clarke from Friday, May 2 to Friday, June 27.
The public is invited to the opening reception Friday, May 9, from 5 to 7 p.m. All works are for sale and the library receives a 30 percent commission.
Nelsbach’s work reflects more than 50 years experience with a wide variety of media that combines fantasy and realism. She studied fine art at the Galerie des Artistes in Brussels, Belgium, the Malschule Laumen in Moenchengladbach, Garmany, and the Academy of Design and Art in the Bauhaus tradition in Aachen, Germany where her thesis earned her a diploma with distinction. In addition to her thematic series of works inspired by Hermann Hesse, Chihuly, Gaudi, and Berlioz’s “Symphonie Fantastique,” Nelsbach has written and illustrated a children’s book which received the Writer’s Digest Award for Outstanding Accomplishment. Her award winning works appear in numerous collections internationally.
The photographic work of Len Clarke focuses on the Maine landscape and life style. His photographic imagery is enhanced by his artistic exploration of other media including oil, watercolor, etching, and photographic etching. Clarke holds a degree in Urban Design from M.I.T. where he studied with Kevin Lynch and Bauhaus designer Gyorgy Kepes. He has taken courses from the Corcoran College of Art, Washington, D.C., The School of Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and numerous workshops in Maine. Clarke's work has received awards in Life Drawing from the Corcoran School of Art and in the Nature Photography from the New England Wild Flower Association.
