A hands-on presentation 

Nancy Gower started painting in the 1980s when her daughter was in grade school. She then joined a group of painters in Columbus and has painted on wood, furniture, metal, stone, and glass.

Her husband and she purchased a 200-acre farm with an 1890’s farmhouse in 2008. She gets a lot of inspiration from her new home and landscape.

Nancy took intensive watercolor classes with Floss Jennings for several years. She also painted at the East Street Art Studio. There she met several artists that have helped and encouraged her.

Nine years ago, Mrs. Gower met the Rancocas Valley Plein Air Painters where they were painting in Vincentown. They invited her to join the group. She also joined WAA, after meeting Donna Fascenda at her place of employment, where they worked together. They also started the Southampton Township Creative TA team where they conduct the various class and hold informative sessions.

Nancy now takes classes with RJ Haas at the Town Hall in Vincentown. He encourages her to step out of her comfort zone and try new techniques. Through him, she has also found a love of bold, primary colors that have been used to decorate their farmhouse.
