In the news:
Woman up: Are gender exclusive art shows still a thing? And does anybody even care anyway?
By Alexander Castro Newport, RI

Newport Art Museum Adds My Work to Their Permanent Collection

Thank you to Francine Weiss, Senior Curator at the Newport Art Museum, for including my Ms. Behavior series in the exhibition Domestic Affairs. I am pleased to announce the museum’s purchase of my images Hot and Independence (see them below) from that show for their permanent collection. It has been a pleasure working with everyone at the museum and getting to know the other artists in Domestic Affairs.

Nancy Grace Horton’s work is humorous, meaningful, and visually rich. It is very much of this moment in contemporary American life as it comments on gender roles and portrayals of women in visual culture. Most importantly, it makes all us want to Ms. Behave a little.
  — Francine Weiss, Senior Curator, Newport Art Museum

Nancy Grace Horton: Being 13

September 6 – November 3, 2012

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 6, 2012, 6:30 – 8:00 pm
PRC Members' Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston

In this exhibition, Nancy Grace Horton explores her stepdaughter’s navigation through the often monumental year of being 13. With Zoe as her muse, Horton captures priceless moments in the world of a girl who is leaving a part of herself behind while learning to embrace who she is becoming-–Zoe expresses a variety of states peculiar to girls in their early teens: defiance, playfulness, embarrassment, youthfulness, boredom, and independence. Horton’s enchanting photographs clearly depict her subject’s blossoming sense of selfhood while also revealing the artist’s deep affection for and fascination with her subject.

read the review

Photographer Nancy Grace Horton agreed to be a featured artist for the "Performing Arts, by Visual Artists Exhibition," May to August, at the Gallery at 100 Market in Portsmouth. While digging through her archives she headed to the space itself for ideas and that inspired a site-specific project; the first for both artist and venue.

"When you're making it for a specific place it only makes sense to consider the (area) while creating the work, especially if you're a photographer," says Horton, who has snapped pictures for area theater and dance companies for decades and is the official Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom photographer. "It was inspiring."

Horton's narrowed her exhibit to female images. The collection is still "fluid," she notes — but will include photos "that speak to each other," and at least one oversized triptych. "Working with the space ...; hopefully will make for a stronger statement and for stronger viewing."

The Music Hall, Portsmouth NH

Thu, April 29 2010, 5:00 PM

In a one-night-only show 20/20 brings into focus the thriving art of photography here in the Seacoast. For this extra-special event, we’ve assembled twenty of the best photographers in the region and asked them to select twenty of their favorite Seacoast-centric images to show on six big screens in The Music Hall lounge. The result – a massive digital slide show, and probably the largest photography exhibition Portsmouth has ever seen.  more info

In the Spring of 2006, six American photographers journeyed to Ghana to document that country on the eve of its fiftieth anniversary of independence.  Their effort was inspired by the work of master American photographer, Paul Strand, who documented Ghana at the moment of its independence in 1963, at the request of Kwame Nkrumah, the country’s first president.  Strand’s book, Ghana: An African Portrait, was published in 1976, a year after his death.

The work of these six photographers; Peter Randall, Nancy Grace Horton, Barbara Bickford, Gary Samson, Charter Weeks, and Tim Gaudreau, all of whom live in and around Portsmouth, NH., was published in a book titled, Ghana: An African Portrait Revisited in 2007.  The book also contains an essay by Abena P.A. Busia, a faculty member at Rutgers, the University of New Jersey, and daughter of a Ghanaian prime minister.

Addison Woolley Gallery of Portland, ME., in collaboration with A FINE THING: Edward T. Pollack Fine Arts, and the Museum of African Culture, both also located in Portland, is proud to present an exhibition of 42 photographs from the book.  A complementary exhibit of Ghanaian art and artifacts will coincide at The Museum of African Culture, 13 Brown St., (207) 871-7188.

The 50 States Project

January thru December 2009

The 50 States Project has brought together 50 photographers from across the USA.
Each photographer lives in one of the 50 States and during the year long project
each photographer will represent the State where they currently live. Every two months each photographer will be sent an assignment by e-mail, they then have two months to produce one image in response. The images must represent both their style and their State.
