An artist of unsurpassed vision and personal integrity, Nancy Worthington’s artworks represented the U.S.A. in the 18th International Bienal in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Her works are in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C., the U.S. State Department Art in Embassies Program, and private collections worldwide. Her artworks are exhibited in the U.S., Europe and Japan. This August, her artworks will be exhibited in Oslo, Norway. Worthington is currently featured in World of Art Magazine and recently featured in the Sunday New York Times. Worthington places her images on a tightrope between comic absurdity and tragic consequence. Art Historian Susan Platt, comments: “In the tradition of Bosch and Breughel, Worthington feels the injustices and ironies of our society. She uses her art as a vehicle for arousing our awareness of situations that concern her.”
Since the (s)election of George W. Bush, Worthington was compelled to create a series of artworks about the Bush White House. This has become the George Dubya series of 20 artworks (2000-2004.) Her Texas Bull-y posters were exhibited at Columbia University and SOHO in New York City and in 7 foot format at the World Social Forum earlier this year in Bombay, India.
“With the same abundant passion I used to create the George Dubya series of artworks, I invite you to join me to help defeat Bush while you enjoy experiencing this engaging art series.”
