UUC supports art as an important component of the life of members, friends, and the broader local community. Art is an expression of the human spirit. Art often touches viewers in a deep and significant way and can provide experience of mystery and wonder, which is one source of insight for Unitarian Universalists.

The Committee on Visual Arts usually organizes art exhibits at UUC for the benefit of area a

rtists and the appreciation of those using the Meeting House. If you’re interested in displaying your art at UUC, please contact Denise Martin

New Artist: Nancy Norton

Nancy Norton is our new artist. Please check our her amazing art located outside of Elarth Hall and the front entrance lobby. 

Here is how Nancy describes herself and her art:

I am an artist without an art degree. I am an explorer of art. I have learned from workshops and fellow artists and experience. I am an artist who enjoys exploring a variety of media including watercolor, acrylic, ink, stained glass, collage, and handmade paper.

After many years in Blacksburg, Virginia, and, more recently, two years in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, I moved to Lancaster in June 2022. My joy is that I will be moving back to the New River Valley in the near future. I have exhibited in Wyoming, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. I belong to the Blacksburg Regional Art Association and the Lancaster County Art Association and served as president of the Blacksburg Regional Art Association.

After a career in libraries and computers I now enjoy exercising my right brain as an artist. I am a constant student of life and art, seeking to honor the gift of seeing and the courage of the artists past and present who guide and encourage me.

Please contact Denise Martin if you are interested in purchasing any of Nancy’s art.
