The ZAAP Gallery will host featured artist Nora Daniel during the month of June. Nora Daniel was born and raised in NYC about 50 years ago and lived in Vermont. She has traveled to paint various points in Europe, Cuba, and Mexico. She transplanted to Ohio in 2005 after meeting fellow painter Paul Emory in Provincetown, Mass. They have a daughter together. Since coming to Zanesville, she has won many awards from the Ohio Arts Council and placement of her work in the Ohio Governor’s Mansion. Her work is also sought fervently by collectors of her paintings.
Daniel is a “realist” who takes her subjects from her surroundings, then engineers her compositions from her unique perspective. Her skill is unquestioned and her style is coloristic, often painterly. She may render a still life in great detail while summarizing a building or hillside with broad strokes.
Her imagination enlivens simple scenes, creating internal narratives and raising questions about seemingly simple objects.
