5 Quick Questions: Diane Nelson

We are officially announcing a new series on our blog, 5 Quick Questions! For each post we will ask a different artist member 5 questions about their lives as artists.

This week we are getting to know more about landscape painter Diane Nelson.

Lecturer Tom Butterfield's Journey of Bermudian Art

Nestled in Bermuda’s Botanical Gardens, a transformed arrowroot factory is now a treasure trove of Bermuda art.

The Copley Society of Art is very excited for this change of weather and wanted to share with you some works by our members that help remind us that the glorious season of spring will shortly be here.
