Swimming in the Infinite: A Solo Exhibition by Nancy Hamlin-Vogler

Swimming in the Infinite

Swimming in the Infinite

April 29—June 2, 2013

Nancy Hamlin-Vogler will explore the Infinite in her solo show at the Fifth Avenue Art Gallery. The show will begin April 29 and run through June 2nd. Her artwork is gestural and spontaneous, while maintaining comprehensible proportions. She works on prepared paper using acrylic aqueous mediums combined with gesso, charcoal, conte, and pastels, occasionally adding pasted paper elements from silk screens or drawings. Hamlin-Vogler’s work reflects her roots in Cape Cod and Maine, with worldwide travels in between.

Hamlin-Vogler studied art at Wells College and learned the screen printing process while earning her M.A. in French literature at the University of Maine. An award winning artist, Hamlin-Vogler is a member of the St. Augustine Art Association and exhibits in gallery shows throughout Florida. For the past ten years she has co-directed the Louise Freshman Brown Art Workshops in St. Augustine.

The opening reception for the show will be Friday, May 3, 2013 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Meet Hamlin-Vogler as you enjoy viewing the artwork.

What a Difference a Day Makes: 24 Hour Art Challenge on youtube

Whew! What an exciting March it has been at the gallery! Months and months of planning and coordinating… 24 artists, 24 hours, 24 works of art to raise money and awareness for Very Special Arts Brevard. We are so fortunate to have partnered with Brandt Ronat & Company to capture the artists and their approach to the challenge in an amazing documentary about the project!

We had a wonderful premiere and gala reception on Friday, March 15th and thus far have raised over $4,000 for VSA Brevard. Thanks to all who participated… the artists, the filmmakers, the merchants who donated items for our raffle baskets and our wonderful patrons who bought tickets!

The documentary really pulled the project together. The 24 artists worked separately…in their own studios and homes and did not, for the most part, have much interaction until after the challenge was over. We talked to them about art and it’s effect on their lives and all the connections are captured on film.

You can watch it now, then stop in the gallery or call to order a copy! $10 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3cLM3hDI84
