Nancy Muir Pearce studied with Bridgeman at the Art Students League, with Kurt Roesch at Sarah Lawrence and for many years with Sam Feinstein in New York, a close associate of Hans Hofmann.
She worked in acrylics, with a particular interest in the relationships of colors. She had painted in oils, done lithographs and life drawings.
"With a palette of high-intensity hues", one critic has written, "the artist approaches her compositions with an obvious sense of adventure, catching refractions of light and texture. The paintings virtually explode with fragmented color that entices the attention."
She has exhibited in Oldwick, New Jersey, the Wingspread Gallery at Northeast Harbor, Maine, Old Sculpin Gallery in Edgartown, Mass., the Menemsha Gallery in Menemsha, Mass., the Kelly Nason Winter Art Exhibit in New York and the last 3 years at the Cork Gallery in Lincoln Center, New York.
