Nancy Morrow, Associate Professor, Painting and Drawing: B.F.A., mcl and M.F.A., University of Washington.  Professor Morrow teaches all levels of Painting, as well as Drawing and Color Theory.  Her work has been shown in more than 100 exhibitions throughout the U.S., as well as in Japan, Slovakia, Germany, Hungary and Mexico.  A former Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture Fellow, she was awarded the Mid-Career Fellowship in Visual and Fine Art from the Kansas Arts Commission in 2009. She has been one of 20 national members of A.I.R. Gallery in Brooklyn, NY since 2005.

Using languages from painting, drawing and that of the assembled, Nancy Morrow’s work explores via parody, relationships of the self to family and culture, and the tangential politics of representation.  Images are combed from psychology, mythology, children’s literature, popular science, mass culture and her own life experience. Desire is central to the work, as is a quiet questioning of power and control with references to sexuality and reproduction, beauty, youth and health, and the lure of material wealth.
