Nancy Lindburg (b. 1935)Promise, 2010, Oil on canvas, 48.25" x 36" Maribeth Collins Art Acquisition Fund
A native of Fargo, North Dakota, Nancy Lindburg studied at Mills College in California and the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan before settling in Salem with her family in the 1960s. An arts administrator as well as an artist, she was executive director of the Salem Art Association in the 1970s and visual arts coordinator for the Oregon Arts Commission from 1978 until 1991. Promise is characteristic of her recent work with its saturated color and dense overall pattern of thickly applied brushstrokes. Though some of her paintings of this type evoke seasons and the landscape, Promise is more purely abstract and metaphorical, addressing a less tangible subject of contemplation.
