Project Description


nancy overton

Nancy Overton’s love for paper and glue and her fondness for old recipes and love letters have inspired an artistic life of collage and papier mache. Nancy’s posters and three-dimensional creations make use of maps, stamps, sheet music and ephemera discovered on her Saturday morning outings to estate and garage sales in and around her home town of Oakland. Each design is made up of many individual torn or cut pieces of paper, secured by Elmer’s glue.

Nancy’s work will be featured at the Rare Bird on Thursday, February 16 2012.
