Artist Nancy Rondeau displays artwork at Vail Public Library

Daily staff report
This painting by Nancy Rondeau, called "Dawn Comes to the Vail Valley," will be on display along with many others at the Vail Library community room this month.

Artist Nancy Rondeau is celebrating her ninth exhibit at the Vail Public Library community room. The show is on display the month of November during normal library hours. An artist reception is slated for Nov. 18 from 3 to 6 p.m. in the community room.

Rondeau has been a Vail resident since 1988.

Way back when, she taught art for some years in Wisconsin before moving to London for an extended period.

“I couldn’t help but pick up the brushes when moving to Vail with all the surrounding beauty of nature here,” she said.

Regarding her art, Rondeau said this: “To take a canvas and accept the challenge to create something from the reality of nature on that surface is what I like to do. A painting can be more alive than a photograph. It can emit a certain movement from brush strokes intermingled with sensitive tones of color and effects of light that give it its life. Each of my paintings are new to me. I don’t like repetitive art and I don’t care to distort nature. Nature is what it is. You can’t improve upon its perfection, but one likes to keep a piece of the moment to remember it by.”
