Exhibit: Enlightened Pathways

September 23, 2016 @ 11:00 am - October 6, 2016 @ 4:00 pm

Two major historical parks, American and Irish, in a collection of fine art prints by Nancy Previs.
Enlightened Pathways celebrates the beauty of nature’s textures and forms in St Stephen’s Green and Central Park. Inspired by the progressive view in the late 19th century which prompted the creation of public urban green spaces ‘for the improved health and well-being of all’, Nancy Previs has explored, in detail, two important manmade city center green spaces: Dublin’s St Stephen’s Green, Dublin’s first city center southside public space – opened to the public in 1880  and New York’s Central Park, the first landscaped public park in the United States which was opened in 1858.

To create her richly-textured, multi-plate original handmade prints, Nancy Previs has used both traditional and contemporary printmaking techniques and materials. 

Nancy Previs lives in Dublin, Ireland and makes regular trips to New York and Washington DC. Her work has featured in shows in Ireland, the UK and the US. For interviews contact Nancy at:

Enlightened Pathways exhibit will begin on Friday September 23 to Thursday October 6, 2016 and will be open to public viewing on weekdays  from 11am – 4pm.
