Marci Nadler is a colorist working in oils, acrylics, watercolor, and ink. Her painting straddles a line between representational and abstract. Her work has been exhibited internationally, on loan through Art in Embassies Program (in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and La Paz, Bolivia), and in numerous group and solo exhibits in the U.S.. Nadler’s paintings are in Rachel Mellon’s Oak Spring Garden Library Collection, and many private collections. Her work was included in the Robert D’Arista Legacy exhibit at the Katzen Museum at American University.
Upon graduating with a BA in Graphic Design from AU, Nadler entered two pieces in the National Society of Arts and Letters Regional Competition in Painting and won First Place. That recognition, the encouragement of mentors Bill Calfee, Robert D’Arista and Ben Summerford, together with Graduate Fellowship Awards and The Helene Herzbrun Award for Painting convinced her to pursue an MFA in painting at American University. She continued her fine arts studies in following years with former AU faculty Stephen Pace in Maine and New York, and with William Calfee and Patricia Friend in Chevy Chase, MD.
Nadler is a member of Artists in Middleburg, a member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators, and a longtime member of the National Society of Arts and Letters.
In addition to painting, Marci Nadler promotes the tremendous artistic diversity of the Virginia Piedmont. She currently works from a studio and gallery in Marshall, Virginia.
