WSG and Studio Gallery are collaborating on an exhibition to pay tribute to Nancy Frankel (1929 - 2021), a beloved artist, teacher and member of the community.

We invite artists who knew Nancy or were influenced by her work and life to submit to this non-juried call. The theme, Organic Geometry is inspired by a quote from Nancy:

“I use organic geometry to give form to my love of nature and architecture. My work has been a long meditation, an effort to get past the surface aspects of reality, to find deeper meaning." 


Artists wishing to honor Nancy are invited to submit 1 work. Submissions must be made using this form and will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis. Due to limited space, we can only accept 12 submissions that meet the following criteria:

- Artist must be an active WSG member in good standing.
