Looking Forward
Juror Nancy Azara

“Things are uncertain in so many ways for all of us. With this comes the unknown, with endless possibilities for new ideas. We are beginning to plan ahead, form bonds again and to be in community. It gives us strength and power. To be present together gives us hope to plan for the future, towards a better future.”

Nancy Azara is an artist and feminist educator best known for her large-scale wood sculptures and mixed media collages. Her work is found wood, carved, ornamented and mounted. Instinctive chip carving peels off an outer layer of wood, reaching for an essentialized raw experience of the body, of the limbs, exposing flesh and blood. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally, most recently in a solo show Crow and Sandal Series and Other Works at Kaaterskill Gallery, Hunter Village, NY (2019), Labyrinths of the Mind at the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild in Woodstock, NY (2019), Nancy Azara: Nature Prints at Saint John’s University, Queens, NY, and Crossing Boundaries: Material as Message at (RoCA), West Nyack, NY. Upcoming: a solo show at A.I.R. Gallery, Brooklyn, NY (Jul 2 – Aug 1, 2021). She is the author of Spirit Taking Form: Making a Spiritual Practice of Making Art available through Red Wheel/Weiser. She has taught many workshops and classes. www.nancyazara.com
