Nancy Vineburgh of Bluffton will be a featured artist Nov. 9 as part of the Savannah Art Walk. The event began in 2015 to bring together Savannah area artists, galleries, tourists and the community, and takes place on the second Saturday of the month from September through June. This year's events include live painting demonstrations, exhibitions, opening and closing receptions at the Hyatt and Penny Lane Hotels.
Vineburgh is one of eight members of the local chapter of National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) who will be participating in the 10-month event, for which NAWA national is a sponsor. Each month, a featured artist will speak about her work and the mission of NAWA, a not-for-profit headquartered in New York City.
The organization was founded in 1889 to address the lack of female representation in what was then a male-dominated art world, and continues to foster the growth of female artists.
The NAWA South Carolina Chapter was founded in Bluffton in the fall of 2018 and is one of three state chapters nationwide.
Vineburgh will exhibit two pieces of her art, "Autumnal Tidepools" and "Pink Muhly Grass on Parade." She is currently writing a book review for the organization's national newsletter. At a local level, she is a new board member in the role of Membership Chair.
