The Grimshaw-Gudewicz Art Gallery opens on January 16 with a solo exhibition of the work of artist Nancy Selvage.

Nancy Selvage’s work has been recognized in numerous reviews and supported by various grants, residencies, and awards including a Massachusetts Artists Foundation Sculpture Fellowship and two Massachusetts Arts Council New Works Commissions. 

Selvage regularly exhibits at Boston Sculptors Gallery and in numerous national and international venues. Clients for large public art commissions include the City of Cambridge, Massachusetts; Keene State College, New Hampshire, the National Park Service, Grand Canyon; and the North Carolina Zoo.

Her educational career includes a long tenure as Director at the Ceramics Program at Harvard University and guest teaching at Massachusetts College of Art, Ewhathe University in Seoul, School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and Rhode Island School of Design. As an honorary professor at Tohoku University, Japan, she has contributed an art/science perspective to a variety of interdisciplinary, international conferences.

In the spring of 2013, she worked with the College and landscape architect Michael Radner to dramatically redesign BCC’s Employee Recognition Garden.  As part of the project, which included landscaping and tree plantings, Selvage developed the garden sculptures to honor and commemorate faculty and staff years of employment and service to the college.
