Nan Hass Feldman’s paintings are real and alive. Her interiors describe “a place I want to be.” Sometimes this is done with an exuberance that is difficult to contain. Her interiors are filled with spontaneous bursts of imaginary color, they are animated and hard to control. “These paintings are my serious play!” Blessed by a love of life, an optimistic outlook, a very high energy level, a passion for painting, and a drive to put and keep her creative life in the forefront, all these have gone into her thirty-nine year career as an artist. Having grown up in the art museums in New York City and having taught in three art museums, she says she makes art to pay homage to those artists who have touched her life since early childhood. Her work is also inspired by her many travels abroad, and she has conducted classes in Aix-en-Provence and Dieulefit France. Katherine French, Director of the Danforth Museum of Art, remarks of Ms. Feldman’s work, “Her paintings are an expression of character, one that embraces a joy and optimistic expectation that the world is an interesting place!” She has exhibited throughout New England and is part of many public and private collections including those of the Danforth Museum of Art, DeCordova Museum Corporate Collection, Fidelity Investment Corp, Framingham State College and many of Boston's hospitals. Her many solo exhibitions include those at The French Cultural Center of Boston, Carre D'Artistes Gallery in Barcelona, Spain, and the Danforth Museum of Art, Massachusetts.
