Award-winning artist Nancie King Mertz has spent her lifetime painting in oil & pastel. She has traveled to nearly 20 countries and around the US for inspiration, but Chicago, where she was twice named “Artist of the Year”, remains her favorite city to explore and paint. Collectors marvel at the beauty she finds in the urban setting and have said she "softens the edges of the city".
Mertz will be giving a painting demonstration in Room 104 for two hours before discussing her display on the second floor at 7:00 PM.
