Artist Nancy McTague-Stock credits early exposure to environmental experiences as the impetus for her life long artistic focus. Her environmentally focused imagery centrally highlights the fragility of nature in an increasingly technocentric world, through an amalgam of painting, printmaking and contemporary photographic media. Her work is observation-based, with a strong conceptual sensibility and superb craftsmanship.
Nancy was a Fellowship Recipient for post-graduate work at The Slade School of Art at the University of London in Experimental Drawing, a grant recipient for The Denis Diderot AIR Grant in France, and the recipient of the Visionary Award for an artist and art educator from the Silvermine Art Center in addition to other honors. She received an MFA from The Art Institute of Boston in Visual Studies in New Media, with mentors inclusive of Dike Blair, Richard Klein, Anthony Apesos and Judith Barry. She holds a Marketing Strategy Certificate from Cornell University’s Johnson Graduate School of Management, and a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in Metalsmithing and Textiles, with specialty training in ancient jewelry techniques from the Kulicke Stark Academy for Jewelry Art in New York with Bob Kulicke.
Ms. McTague-Stock’s work has been exhibited in group exhibitions at over ten museums, and solo/group shows in galleries and universities in Bulgaria, Canada, China, Denmark, Great Britain, Ireland, Latvia, New Zealand, Portugal, Serbia and in the U.S., from Los Angeles to New York. Nancy’s work has appeared in such publications as the Art New England Magazine, VCU Arts, CBS Connecticut, Connecticut Post, EastCoast Home & Design, Hearst Media, New York Times, New England Home, Moffly Media, Plein Air Magazine, Studio Visit Magazine, The Greenwich Times, and VENU Magazine, among others. Her work is collected by private and public institutions worldwide, including acquisitions of her work by Yale University’s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, The Douro Museum Printmaking Biennial Collection in Portugal and The Chateau Orquevaux Collection in France.
Nancy’s experience in a wide variety of media is extensive, with an environmental focus in her series of projects. She has created commissioned, community-focused, interactive installations and designed community participation projects, global artistic exchanges and outreach programs. A periodic lecturer about contemporary art, environment and culture, Nancy has served as a teacher, artists’ mentor, curator and juror for many academic, private and public institutions for exhibitions, including The Prince of Wales Foundation in the UK. Nancy lives on a nature preserve, providing a constant source of fodder for her work and maintains her studio in South Norwalk, Connecticut.
