Nancy Marks has been a Boston-based printmaker and painter for more than twenty-five years.
In addition to solo exhibitions, her work has been displayed in galleries and corporate settings, and has been juried into many shows. Her current work explores two different narratives unified by similar art-making approaches. Urban Abstraction represents a body of work that explores the city, steeped in its aesthetic and social paradoxes. Marks’ other body of work grows out of her experiences teaching art and as an arts and health facilitator. It represents her enduring respect for the human spirit, as it engages in the profound and complex process of healing. Her recent project, The Intimacy of Memory Art and Storytelling Project: Reframing Loss and Overcoming Stigma in the Face of Opioid Overdose, was recently featured on WBUR: http://www.wbur.org/artery/2016/11/18/art-opioid-overdose
