Moore’s art in museum shows

Ridgefield artist Nancy Moore has works accepted in two museum shows that opened last month, and has received a prize in one.

Her watercolor “Wonder Girl” is winner of the juror’s choice award at the New Britain Museum of American Art’s 48th annual Nor’Easter Exhibition. The large watercolor is part of Moore’s “Unconventional Women” series, and she describes it as “a depiction of a young woman who is one with nature, and a celebration of the color and light that surround us even on the darkest of days.”

The show runs through July 15. The museum is at 56 Lexington Street in New Britain, and the hours are: 11-5 Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday; 11-8 Thursday; and 10-5 Saturday.

The exhibition was juried by Stephanie Haboush Plunkett, deputy director and chief curator of the Norman Rockwell Museum.

Closer by, Moore’s work “This is My Binder,” done in polyester and silk thread, has been accepted to the Katonah Museum of Art’s show Signal: Tri-State Exhibition, juried by Lumi Tan, curator of The Kitchen in New York. The exhibition runs through Sunday, July 29. Hours are: 10-5 Tuesday through Saturday; and 12-5 Sunday. The museum is at 134 Jay Street (Route 22), Katonah, N.Y.
