Carroll County Arts Featured Artist For November
Nancy Foley is the November Featured Artist. Her show features a series of original paintings and drawings devoted to the "Beauty of Carroll County".
She studied commercial art at Timken High School with sculptor Raymond Coia. Oster stated, "I credit Raymond with giving me a strong foundation in the fine arts. I won two national competitions while in high school. One was with an oil painting and the second was with a watercolor."
She took drawing classes at Akron University and continued to paint and draw focusing on portraits and figure drawing. She did free-lance projects which included interior murals in historical homes. For one year she had a studio housed at Studio Arts & Glass 30th Street location. In 1981 she began a tradition of creating her own Christmas cards with personal subjects, some hand painted, of her children, family, pets and her home. This tradition continues today and the Oster family send 100 cards every year.
In 2000 she began teaching art classes in her home studio, at the Carroll County Arts Center and at Falcon Camp. She has judged, participated and won awards at the Mill Festival over the years and has taught acrylic painting at Michael's. This led to her developing her skill as a landscape artist in acrylic. She illustrated a published book, "Bing, WWI Hero" in 2012 and is currently writing and illustrating her own children's books. She is also working with a talented group of painters studying portraiture as an ongoing workshop. Nancy works also in pen, pencil and oils.
Oster's series of paintings and drawings has been compiled into a 2016 calendar. Funds from the sale of the calendars will benefit the CHS Marching Band and the Child Care Center in Dellroy.
Nancy and husband Tom have two daughters, Grace and Emily and live in Dellroy. She is administrator of Our Place Childcare Center at the Christ Community Church in Dellroy. She previously was a classroom assistant at Carrollton and Sandy Valley Schools.
