I was delighted to open this email yesterday from See|Me at http://www.see.me.com. Since I was unable to be in New York for the event, I had to wait until now to see which of my entries had been chosen. I was honored to see that Reach made the cut.
Dear Nancy Satin:
It’s been an honor to show your work as part of The Affordable Art Fair. Your work was on view on March 27th – 31st, 2019 at: The Affordable Art Fair, Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street, New York, NY 10011. Without question, the act of creation has always been a historical marker; a civilization’s culture is judged first and foremost by the art left behind. Just as archaeologists offer hypotheses about ancient societies based on cave paintings, historians of the future will base their conjectures about us on the contemporary art that is happening at this very moment. As technology makes our world more interconnected, the act of creation has become a universal language and a vital conversation. Your art represented at the annual Affordable Art Fair is a thrilling contribution to that dialogue. Thank you for sharing your talent with us and with the world.
Dancing With the Stars
I attended yet another lovely reception at the Lighthouse Artcenter in Tequesta, FL, on Thursday evening, March 21st, for the Best of the Clubs juried exhibition, which ran through March 28th. This was the largest exhibition of paintings, photographs and 3D art from more country club communities than they’ve ever displayed before, and I’m happy to have Dancing With the Stars included in such good company! Now that I’m a full time Florida resident, I look forward to joining the Lighthouse Artcenter as a member, giving me more opportunities to show my work at this impressive venue for artists.
I try to contribute to the BallenIsles Charitable Foundation for its good work for the Palm Beach Gardens community in some way every year. This year, I donated a painting to the Silent Auction at the close of a long weekend of sold out activities and had a lovely write up in the preview for the festivities.

Some say it was a pear Eve ate…, an unframed oil on canvas by Nancy Satin, measures 40” x 30.” But look closely and you will see a “Da Vinci Code” in the painting. Be sure to mount your new painting across from a mirror so that you can read the message! Nancy Satin, originally from the Boston area, is now a local Florida artist. She has participated in many Art Exhibitions, including our local Lighthouse ArtCenter. Her website is: www.nancysatinart.com. Nancy is a BallenIsles resident.
Good news for the new year came from Light Space & Time Online Gallery today. I entered their 8th Annual All Women Art Exhibition, and Diva won a Special Recognition award for outstanding art in the Painting and Other Media category. The gallery received 909 entries from 24 countries from around the world, including 37 states in the U.S., so I am honored to be including among so many talented women.
You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t posted since October 18, a significant date for me and my husband, since that was the day we accepted an offer for our house in Swampscott. We only had two months to clean out and pack up the home we’ve had there for almost 45 years, so painting and posting had to take a back seat for a couple of months until we closed and moved to our condo in Florida. Recovering from the stress and labor involved in such a big move has been a challenge, but I’m just about ready to resume my life and get back to painting again. Look for a painting of my son and his son soon, as well as several black & white studies…
I subscribe to an arts organization called See.Me that specializes in providing online profiles for artists to display and promote their work and holds real-world exhibitions every few years. Last week, See.Me featured Rising Again in Volume 4 of Art Takes SoHo on their website, directing viewers to my website when they click on the image. It’s very gratifying to be included in a juried show with artists from all over the world.
How delightful to end a relaxing holiday weekend with the news that Reach won a Special Merit Award in the Painting and Other Media category of the LightSpaceTime Online Gallery Open Art Exhibition for September 2018! The gallery received 702 entries from 31 different countries from around the world, as well as from 39 different states, and I am honored to be included with 64 other artists in this category. You can enjoy a slide show of this exhibition on lightspacetime.art by clicking on the thumbnail image on their website, which will then display larger images.
The LightSpaceTime Online Gallery ran a Vacation Special Art Competition (no theme) this June, asking artists to submit five images of their best abstract or representational art to be considered for exhibition. The gallery received 1558 entries from 39 different countries around the world, 43 states and the District of Columbia. There were only five overall winners, drawn from Painting and Other Media, 3 Dimensional Art and Photography and Digital Media, so I was especially honored to find that Rising Again has won a Special Merit Award in Painting and Other Media. Take a look at www.lightspacetime.art to see the 84 artists in this category with me, since I can only show you a small sample here.
