The artwork of Nancy Marshall is on display at the Campanella Gallery on Park University's Parkville Campus through Friday, Aug. 31. Marshall's exhibit, "See, Jump, Smile: Narrative Oil Paintings," features a variety of paintings, portraits, still lifes and landscapes.
Marshall, who has taught high school drawing, painting, pottery and filmmaking, has displayed her work both nationally and internationally. She currently has work exhibited at the Spencer Museum of Art in Lawrence, Kan., and the Mulvane Art Museum in Topeka, Kan.
"I was especially drawn to exhibit at Park University because of its proximity to the Missouri River," Marshall said. "The work 'Breakfast on a Misty River' was painted especially for this exhibit, inspired by the idea of never underestimating the importance of encounters with wild things during quiet moments."
