YOUNGSTOWN — The work of artist Nancy Schwartz Katz will be shown from Tuesday through Sept. 24 at the Thomases Family Endowment Art Gallery in the Jewish Community Center of Youngstown, 505 Gypsy Lane.
The exhibit, “Cut Paper Narratives,” also will be available to view on the JCC’s website.
Katz uses a variety of media to tell the stories of individuals, organizations and history while aiming to explore various aspects of humanity, a news release states. Through her use of color, paper choice and varied details, she creates symbolism aimed at enhancing a particular story.
A graduate of Manhattan’s Parsons School of Design with a major in drawing and conceptual thinking (illustration), Katz also studied drawing privately under artist David Passalacqua. After spending her 20s working for the Pushpin Group, she returned to Cleveland to continue developing her own career in art.
Katz’s body of work includes more than 300 private commissions and approximately 600 laser cuts, paper cuts, limited-edition lithographs and paintings.
