Episode 14: Nancy Lamb

Nancy Lamb is a long-admired artist that has been a fixture in the Fort Worth art and social scene for decades. A native of Fort Worth, she chose to stay close to home by studying art at Texas Christian University. Nancy first gained recognition in her hometown through a series of art classes that she taught at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History which included her production of 3D work. But Nancy is probably best known for her large-scale oil paintings of candid Fort Worth society scenes. These paintings can be found in exhibitions at home and worldwide, such as the Florence Biennale, as well as being a popular choice in private and corporate collections. Nancy is represented in Fort Worth by Artspace 111.

I recently sat down with Nancy at her home studio where we discussed growing up in Fort Worth, the disappearance of small town Texas culture, the upkeep of her four acres, going to parties, experiencing loss and what to do with thirty years of photographs.
