Nancy Rehm is originally from Gettysburg, and now lives in Dallas, PA with her husband, David. She recently retired as a teacher after 31 years, most of them working in the Upper Adams School District.

She is a member of the Adams County Arts Council and the Art Efekts Gallery in Pittston.
Although she has worked in many different types of media, oil pastel is her preferred medium because of its direct, tactile quality. She draws with the pastels and uses her fingers to blend them on the paper. This allows her to vary her style and technique in order to express the mood and movement of the specific subject, whether abstract, landscape, or still life.
The current exhibit displays work spanning the last six years and includes a variety of subjects and styles.
“Chromaticity” means “the quality of color.” Vibrant color is the hallmark of the work in the show.
