I recently spent a very pleasant morning chatting with long-time Adams County visual artist Nanette Hatzes.
Hatzes: Self Portrait
To put it simply, Nan has made a lot of art. She’s also raised a daughter and worked at Shippensburg University, as well as presenting her paintings, drawings and photographs at numerous exhibitions.
In 1980 photographer Annie Leibovitz awarded one of her photos first prize in Rolling Stone Magazine’s photography competition. Leibovitz described her photography as “intimate, seductive, and highly personal.”
Did I mention that Nan has made a lot of art? She’s made so much she’s taken to giving it away to the community through her regular “Art Attacks.”
Nan was also the creator of the very successful “Goddess Project,” a collection of commissioned portraits of local women.
Nan was kind enough to share some of her pieces with us. I thank her for that and I thank Max Bramel for his assistance.
This was my 28th podcast and it was one of the most enjoyable for me. I hope you’ll like it too.
