“The beauty of our local forest, fields, mountains and hills are amazingly inspiring,” said Nella Storm. “Painting at different times of day one may see the mountains pink, magenta, or orange rather than the typical blue, purple or green.” Nella’s paintings of impressionist and expressionist style, as well tile and mosaic pieces, will be on display in Gallery 255 at the Public Library for Union County throughout the month of December.
Exhibiting her work since 1967, Nella’s art has been shown in numerous museums, historical societies and galleries throughout the country. Working in many media and Nella has designed a gold and jewel cross with goldsmith Rick Mahonski for the Polish Pope, huge terra cotta mosaics with Selinda Kennedy for Dunkin Donuts, over 600 interiors and historic color exteriors with architect Jeff Gilbert and an enormous amount of feltings, ceramics, drawings, batiks and paintings. Nella’s work can be found in collections across the globe including Paris, London, Denmark and Poland.
Storm was voted Art Education Association Teacher of the Year for the State of Pennsylvania and received the Coalition for Arts Education Award, the highest honor given by the state for art education.
Nella resides in Muncy with her husband Bruce Storm, an artist in his own right.
An opening reception for Nella is scheduled for December 3 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The reception is free and open to the public.
Artists and organizations are encouraged to apply to exhibit items of artistic, cultural and intellectual interest in the library’s gallery and/or display cases. For more information, visit publibuc.org/adults/whats-on-display/.
