The Eleanor D. Wilson Museum is pleased to present Nancy Dahlstrom: Luminous Spirit, a major exhibition showcasing a wide variety of recent and older works by Hollins professor emerita Nancy Dahlstrom. Whether printmaking, drawing, or painting, Dahlstrom creates art that celebrates the vitality and spirit present in the natural world. An avid gardener, she finds inspiration for her detailed and intricate images in the many gardens that surround her home and studio in Fincastle, Virginia. Her extensive travels have taken her to France, Norway, Scotland, Greece, Malaysia, and along the length of the Trans-Siberian Railroad. In 1995, she spent time in Kyoto, Japan, drawing and photographing the city’s Zen gardens. Upon returning to her studio, she created Fuzei: A Breeze of Feeling, a series of monotypes celebrating the beauty and quiet energy of the spaces she visited.
Dahlstrom was professor of art at Hollins from 1973 - 2013, and holds a B.F.A. from SUNY at Buffalo and an M.F.A. in printmaking from Ohio University. Her work has been exhibited extensively in the United States and abroad. The recipient of many awards, she was honored in 2011 by the Arts Council of the Blue Ridge, Roanoke, Virginia, with the Perry F. Kendig Award for Outstanding Visual Artist, for her contributions to the local arts community.
