The Art of the River Towns Artist of the Week: Nancy Lloyd


The inaugural Art of the River Towns exhibition, sponsored by River Towns Magazine, is set to open at the Prallsville Mills in Stockton N.J., on Thursday, Oct. 1. In the weeks leading up to the show, the Herald will feature one of the local artists accepted for entry.

This week, we are highlighting Nancy Lloyd of New Hope, who has been painting in oils since 1993 and enjoys all types of subject matter. Her current focus is on landscapes. In addition to oils, she also works in encaustics, collagraphs, monoprints and collages.

“Drawn to the holiday lights in winter, the starry skies of night or the fireflies of summer, I hope to capture light in my work and create a luminescent image, whether of glowing objects or the light illuminating a scene,” Lloyd says in her artist statement.

Lloyd has traveled around the world, calling many locations home, including 12 years spent internationally in England, the Philippines and Hong Kong. She moved to her current home in Solebury, in 2007.

Lloyd has had the opportunity to immerse herself in diverse cultures and has been exposed to local art techniques and materials worldwide. She has had the opportunity to study internationally with art instructors, and the artist-instructor with the most influence on her work is the Emmy Award-winning David Dunlop (“Landscapes Through Time” on PBS).

Co-chairs Pearl and Chuck Mintzer, have helped to launch the Art of the River Towns Online Sales Gallery at

New work will continue to be added through the end of December and the online sales gallery will be available until the end of December.
