Event Details

to honor

Nancy Metz

 

Nancy was born and raised in Hatfield, Pa., an area north of Philadelphia that was then mostly cornfields and small farms. Her father Stanley, a carpenter, with his wife Virginia, built their home where Nancy lived until leaving for college. 

A large garden provided much of the vegetables for the family of five (her grandmother lived there as well) and long hours were spent canning and freezing the results of their labor.  

Family outings were often to church suppers and seasonal food festivals and, as Nancy married and began to raise her family, trips to Pennsylvania were frequently timed to coincide with the ripening of sour cherries or peaches in nearby farms. 

Here Nancy was exposed to traditional folk arts such as quilting, rug hooking and calligraphy common to these Mennonite communities.  Self- sufficiency was an important value and it manifested itself in the art and crafts of these people. 

Nancy continues to be involved there by supporting the Mennonite Historians of Eastern Pennsylvania, a small museum dedicated to preserving the history and artifacts of that area. 

After exploring fine art, photography, and woodworking in high school, Nancy earned her bachelor's in fine art degree from Temple University's Tyler School of Fine Art and then a master's in fine art from Yale University School of Art where she majored in painting and drawing. 

On Long Island, Nancy taught art at The Greenvale School, designed the logo for and became a member of the Smocking Guild, and has lovingly mended and restored linens for the St. John's Church of Cold Spring Harbor Christmas fair for over 30 years. Nancy has also worked as an artist doing local commissions including hand drawn wedding invitations and family trees, until home computers replaced her. 

Within Waldorf education, Nancy completed the Foundation Studies Program and received an Applied and Visual Arts Certificate in Spring Valley, N.Y.  She has taught at The Waldorf School of Garden City since 1998.  All three of her children are graduates of the school and she currently teaches a variety of visual arts, clay sculpture and stained glass to grades 7-12.

Nancy's art explores still life and landscape subjects using oils and pastels, and most recently includes wood and stone carving.  Her work has been exhibited in private collections and museums around the east coast. 

Nancy currently lives in Oyster Bay with her husband George Lindsay and her mother, Virginia.
