Norris Public Library in Rutherfordton, NC, Features Works by Nancy Winker

The art of Nancy Winker, MD will be exhibited in the 2nd of three “Art in the Library” art shows scheduled for 2014 at the Norris Public Library, in Rutherfordton, NC. Winker’s vibrant landscape paintings, drawings and illustrations are on display from Apr. 7 through June 30, 2014. The show is sponsored by the Rutherford County Visual Artist Guild in cooperation with the Norris Public Library.

Winker says her artistic pursuits began at an early age. “I began my artistic career at the age of four with art lessons from my mom in the basement of our home.” She adds that she “sold her first piece of art as a high school student” and “continued formal art training while pursuing a college degree in Biology.”

Winker’s artistic pursuits have continued not only through college but through medical school, a career in medicine, and the busy life as wife and mother to three children. Her art medium of choice is oils but she also enjoys drawing and illustration and illustrated a book, Abigail Ann and the Santa Claus Plan, written by her husband Dr. Guy Winker. She is currently Vice President of the Rutherford County Visual Artists Guild. From 2011- 2013, Winker chaired the annual Celebration of the Arts (COTA), a four-day show of art and fine crafts held annually each September at the Foundation Performing Arts Center

As an artist, Winker’s talent extends beyond the visual arts. She has acted in and produced plays for the Rutherford Community Theater. She frequently performs with the Tryon Little Theater and in 2012 had the leading role in TLC’s production of “Knock Knock.” In February, 2014 she appeared in the Tryon Little Theater’s production of “Fiddler on the Roof”.

The Norris Public Library is a department of the Town of Rutherfordton and a member of the CMC Library Consortium.
