Door County artists Jan Comstock and Marcia Nickols will combine talents in an exhibit at the Meadows Art Gallery at Scandia Village in Sister Bay. Their exhibit runs throughout February with an artist reception on Feb. 9, 2 – 4 pm.
Nickols works in water-based oils and watercolor to create impressionist pieces using color and light. Water scenes predominate her work along with the people, boats and scenery of Door County.
Nickols holds a MFA in art education and spent 36 years teaching before retiring to Door County. She is also a past president of the Door County Art League.
Nickols’ artwork can also be seen at PKJ Designs Gallery in Ephraim, open Saturdays 10 am – 5 pm, and at http://www.woodennickols.com.
Comstock works in traditional oils and focuses on contemporary realism. She depicts a wide range of subject matter but is especially drawn to the human figure and animals. She strives to capture a mood or emotion in her work, hoping to pull the viewer into the painting.
Comstock spent 37 years working as a commercial artist, and says a highlight of her career was an invitation by the US Government to display a piece of her work in a Cultural Exchange Exhibit titled Design USA.
Comstock’s artwork can also be viewed at the Gallery at the Door Peninsula Winery, open daily 9 am – 5 pm, and at http://www.jancomstock.com. In addition, she is represented by Woodwalk Gallery during the season.
