NANCY WORTHINGTON’S POWERFUL SOCIAL COMMENTARY ARTWORK
“THE POLICE STATE-PART I (You Have The Right To Remain Silent”
will be exhibited in the CONTROL EXHIBITION at SOMArts Cultural Center.
This all-women show, presented by the Women’s Caucus for Art was juried by The Guerrilla Girls West.

In light of the arrest of Dr. Gates on July 16, 2009 at his home by Police Sgt. Crowley, and the escalation of this incident to national attention, “The Police State” created by Ms. Worthington in 1992 is extremely relevant in today’s world.

NANCY WORTHINGTON CREATES WINE LABEL ART

Filed under: — Tags: , , , , , — worthington @ 10:51 pm

Planet Pluto Meritage wine (2005), released in April 2009, was created by winemaker Clark Smith (of Vinovation fame), Winesmith Cellars, Sebastopol, CA, to honor Pluto–the absurdly demoted planet.
The original artwork design for Planet Pluto Meritage was done by the internationally acclaimed artist Nancy Worthington, whose unique and controversial style has attracted thoughtful connoisseurs the world over with a gravity all its own. Her insightful and courageous art distills the essence of complex themes, sometimes social, sometimes political, sometimes romantic. Nancy Worthington’s dreamy artwork of Pluto the planet addresses all three realms as we stretch to reconcile science, tradition and our love for the ninth planet.
This delicious blend of Meritage varietals will rock your world!
