A rare artistic combination
An art exhibit has come to the conference room at the Madison County Chamber of Commerce in London on Keny Boulevard. Nancy Noland DeCamp and her son, Edgar Noland DeCamp, are having a show of their paintings during the months of July and August with a “Meet the Artists Reception” from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, July 28. I think this is a show you shouldn’t miss.
Nancy, a longtime resident of London, has studied painting under several artists through the years including Jeanette Maloy, William Sehultz, Linda Pauley, myself and with the group at the senior center. Nancy works in several mediums but spends most of her creativity in oil paint.
Edgar, who is called Ned by almost everyone, attended Willington College with a minor in photography. He now uses this expertise of taking photos and turns them into his paintings. Some of Ned’s past endeavors have been owning and operating a hunting and fishing store and also working as a finish carpenter. He designed and built the home for his mother where she now lives. He is presently president of the Madison County Historical Society.
When Nancy returned to painting and classes, Ned joined her in what became their combined creative effort. Both artists have shown in Springfield, at the Gallery on High, and are members of the London Visual Arts Guild. You can enjoy the fruits of their creative collaboration in the more than 40 paintings now on display at the chamber.
As long as there isn’t a meeting in the chamber room, you are welcome to visit during the chamber’s normal hours from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The chamber is featuring artists from our creative neighborhood. This showing displays two very distinctive styles, yet, they harmonize together very well.
I think you will find it a very interesting, beautiful show.
