Fairleigh Dickinson University presents Nancy Azara’s “Spirit Taking Form: Rubbings, Tracings, and Carvings” in University College Art Gallery

Teaneck, NJ (September 17, 2010) – The art exhibit, “Spirit Taking Form: Rubbings, Tracings, and Carvings” will be on display at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Metropolitan Campus from October 4 to November 12. “Spirit Taking Form: Rubbings, Tracings, and Carvings” features artwork by artist Nancy Azara.

Rubbings, tracings and carvings are ancient forms of art making yet they capture the “essence” or “spirit” of an object in a way that nothing else can, recording an impression, a moment in time. The idea of energy contained in the subject of Nancy Azara’s art is integral to her work and an inherent part of this exhibition. Nancy Azara is an artist whose work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and abroad. Her woodcarvings are assembled and painted. Her rubbings and tracings are works on mylar with paint and collage. Her work was shown at the Andre Zarre Gallery in Chelsea, NY in March of 2010.

More information is available at Azara’s web site,
