Nancy Campbell has been painting the landscape of the upper Hudson Valley for more than 30 years. She finds inspiration in the works of Fairfield Porter, Tom Thomson and the Canadian Group of Seven, and Edward Hopper, as well as contemporary masters Staats Fasoldt and Kate McGloughlin, her colleagues at the Woodstock School of Art, and in the work of Jon Campbell, her son, who lives in Berlin.
From 1998 – 2006, Campbell operated a cooperative art gallery in the Village of Saugerties, the Half Moon Studio. In 2006 she began a four-year term as an elected member of Saugerties Town Board where she was liaison to Economic Development as well as to the Planning, Zoning and Building Departments. In 2010, Campbell left politics to become the Executive Director at the Woodstock School of Art, a not-for-profit school which provides fine art instruction.
Currently, Nancy is working with Italian partner (and family member) Music Art Therapist Giulio Tirinelli, in establishing a painting workshop in the Lazio region of Italy. “Discover Ciociaria” will introduce visitors to the villages such as Genazzano, Serrone and Piglio, where her grandparents grew up.
Nancy lives in the Village of Saugerties with her husband Michael. They have three grown sons; Ben, a musician, songwriter and web designer based in Vermont; Jon, a painter who lives in Berlin, Germany; and Mickey, who will be receiving his graduate degree in Natural Resource Management from the University of New Hampshire.
