Elizabeth Nason is a self-taught artist residing in Greenwood, South Carolina. Focusing primarily on acrylic paintings, she is also well known for her work in Found Object Art and artistic jewelry. Appreciation of her work has led to 19 Solo and over two dozen Juried and Group Exhibitions in South Carolina, Virginia, Rhode Island and New York. Nason has repeatedly hosted students from the Lander University and Erskine College Art Departments at both her exhibitions and studio. She has received many personal invitations to participate in group and solo exhibitions not only to display her own work, but also in support of such events as the National Women’s Studies 17th Annual Association conference, Domestic Violence Awareness month, Women’s Heart Health month and to help increase Cancer Awareness. Nason enjoyed attending Penland School of Crafts in 2005 where she learned the techniques of making hand-made paper to use in her art.
Nason has most recently shown in Greenwood, South Carolina where over a hundred works were displayed at three different venues simultaneously. The show was coordinated by the Greenwood Arts Council and was the area’s first multi-venue exhibit. Among other credits, Nason was an Award Winner or received Honorable Mention for five of her eight entries into the annual Belton Standpipe Festival Juried Exhibition in Belton, South Carolina. In 2006 she was invited to display artistic metal jewelry on the grounds of the South Carolina State Museum during the Congaree Art Festival. In 1995 she recorded a thirty minute public access television program airing in her home town of Westerly, RI during which she discussed her early work. Nason’s only structured artistic or craft education came when she enjoyed attending Penland School of Crafts in 2005 where she learned the techniques of making hand-made paper to use in her art.
