One of the more than 60 artists listed in the Bellefonte Art Museum’s registry is Nancy Palfey. Here is her statement:
In 2004, I did my first portrait in soft pastel. I love the medium of pastel and the versatility of it. My favorite subjects are doing people. I enjoy doing them in an activity or situation. I have also done formal sittings. I want to convey, in my art, the feeling the individuals have in their particular situation.
I also love doing clouds, or what I call “skyscapes.” These works are primarily focused on the sky, the change in light, shape and movement of the clouds, along with a portion of the landscape included in the composition.
The Bellefonte Art Museum celebrates the human spirit through the arts, recognizing the importance of art in our lives. In 2011, the museum experienced a large increase in attendance, private donations and membership and completed refurbishing the historic Linn House. The museum opened three new galleries: the Children’s Creativity Center, the Anna Wagner Keichline Gallery and the new Louise Bloom Sieg Gallery. The museum is opened Friday through Sunday from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Phone 814.355.4280
