Watson-Ewell-Currin Art Gallery

pdf-iconGuidelines for Art Exhibits and Displays (.pdf)


The Watson-Ewell-Currin Community Art Gallery is open to the public during regular library hours. This
gallery represents, and is named for, four generations of artists, all from the same family. It is named for a family of artists that started in Chicago, and is continued in Hudson, Ohio. It has been endowed in hopes that it will provide a display area for Hudson artists of all ages, from the very young to those veterans in the field.

The Hudson Library & Historical Society welcomes and encourages local artists and students to display their work at the library. Please view the gallery brochure for more information about the history of the names above the door.

For more information, contact Nicole Arigo at 330-653-6658 x1046 or nicole.arigo@hudson.lib.oh.us

Nancy Gregg


Now that she’s retired from a career in teaching, artist Nancy Gregg has returned to art, a passion that captured her interest from the time she was a little girl. Over the last thirty years or so, she has dedicated herself to learning as much as possible by experimenting with many different media, devouring all the art books she could find, and taking workshops with noted artists around the country. She currently devotes herself to art full time, honing her contemporary style, her color sense rooted in the tradition of the Cape Cod School, and her unusual combination of palette knife and finger painting techniques.

Nancy is currently represented by the River Light Gallery in Peninsula, Ohio, and has recently completed a large solo show at Beachwood Branch Library in Beachwood, Ohio.  This year, she received an Honorable Mention at Art by the Falls in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and was juried into the Cain Park Arts Festival. She had a very well-received solo show at the Solon Center for the Arts in Solon, Ohio, and a group show at Beachwood Community Center.

Currently she is preparing a second solo show at the Solon Center for the Arts in March 2020. She also has had work on display at Grumpy’s Café in Tremont, The Sweet Spot in Lakewood, and LaBodega in Cleveland. Nancy is a member of the American Impressionist Society, the Valley Art Center of Chagrin Falls, and the Hudson Society of Artists.


Artist’s Statement

“When I’m creating my paintings, I enjoy working with a diverse range of subject matter, from landscapes to florals to figures and animals, but all are imbued with a contemporary sense of vibrant, glowing color. Of course, all of the artistic elements play a role in my paintings, but the most important to me are color and light, which is

why I have naturally gravitated to an impressionistic style.”
