passionate art book by Nancy BrzeskiA New Book Exploring Her Art

From the Preface by Rita Dwyer: “This lovely book exemplifies a strong woman’s determination in her search for wholeness and healing, for gaining freedom to become more attuned to her own talents and through her artistic expression developing creative new ways of seeing and being in her world while honoring the past that led her to her life today. Teacher, wife, mother, grandmother, dreamer, friend, patroness of artists, Nancy Richter Brzeski combines all these energies within her waking and dreaming worlds.

This book is not yet in print but a copy will be available for your review at the art exhibit.
