Nancy Frost Begin is Agave Gallery’s October artist of the month


Nancy Frost Begin is artist of the month for October 2022 at Agave Artist Gallery, 2250 Calle de San Albino in Mesilla, the gallery said in a news release.

Begin “says art is in her genes, heart and bones,” the gallery said. “Nurtured by both artist parents, Begin (a native of Buffalo, New York) earned a BFA degree from Syracuse University and flourished in illustration, fiber, watercolor, oils, clay, wood and contemporary folk art. One of her signature storages pieces, referred to as ‘Monster Box,’ can be replicated as a rock star, opera singer, Viking or any character.”

Begin will conduct a monster box talk and demonstration, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, at the gallery.

An example of her woodcutting skill is displayed in her piece titled "Lady of Guadalupe," which is on view at the gallery along with others.

 As a member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen and Watercolor Society of New Mexico, Begin has won numerous awards.

Agave Artist Gallery is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday and 5-8 p.m. the second Saturday of each month.
