The Rice Gallery at Woodruff's Art Center will have on view “Feline Frenzy” an exhibit featuring the art of Nancy Minnigerode, with a portion of sales benefitting New England Society for Abandoned Animals (NESAA). A talk and art reception will take place on Wednesday, June 13th. The talk will take place at 5:00pm with art reception following until 7:00pm.
The flurry of felines on the gallery walls was inspired by the artist’s work at the New England Society for Abandoned Animals. After adopting several cats from the shelter, Nancy and her husband Kevin became passionate about helping care for the many abused, abandoned and injured cats and kittens brought to the shelter. Each cat is special and given food, shelter, veterinary care and lots of TLC! When they are ready, they are found a “forever” home.
Nancy has blended two professions - a 20 year career as a veterinary technician and a lifelong interest in art. She has a degree in Visual Arts and studied Natural Science Illustration at Rhode Island School of Design. She continues her art journey by taking classes and workshops and works in many mediums, oil being the current favorite.
