2012 Juror Nan Seidler
Visual artist Nan Seidler graduated with a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She continued her education at Northern Illinois University with an MsEd. in Counseling. Nan taught art at a private school in Chicago and at the Chicago Urban League while raising her two daughters. Later she was a counselor at McHenry County College where she co-founded the art show,“Woman’s Works” with the group Workshop for Contemporary Art as a part of Women’s History Month.This show has grown for twenty-five years to become the prestigious national juried event that it is today. Nan applies most years and has been accepted in approximately twenty of the twenty-five shows.
Nan lives with Jim May, her storyteller/writer husband, in rural McHenry County and every Spring they lead a storytelling, writing and art workshop in Oaxaca, Mexico.
Nan has been in many juried and invitational shows and has her work in private collections and at the Woodstock Courthouse Art Center. Nan primarily works in mixed media. Often her work is informed not only by her background in art, but by psychology, myth, dreamscapes, personal history and ecology
