Nancy Coumoundouros, former Cultural Arts Supervisor for the City of Farmington Hills, is the featured artist in a City Gallery exhibit at the Costick Center that runs through November 11.
The public is invited to a free reception for the artist on September 9 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Prior to her time in Farmington Hills, Coumoundouros was Director of the Waterford Cultural Council, where she created and oversaw programs in all areas of the arts – music, theater, visual arts, and special events. As an artist herself, she has painted public and private murals, and also created artwork for an event company.
A graduate of the University of Michigan, Coumoundouros has recently spent time as both an art juror and lecturer. “Eighteen Months” is a collection of works from the past year and a half, which represent her return to oil painting, primarily concentrating on family and events close to her.
“I’ve always been fascinated by people, and the intricate combination of human strength and delicacy,” said Coumoundouros. “Painting offers an infinite opportunity to continue learning and exploring. You’re always a student of all that surrounds you.”
Rachel Timlin, the current Cultural Arts Supervisor, is excited to exhibit the work of her predecessor. “Nancy worked tirelessly for many years serving the Farmington area art community including coordinating exhibits in the City Gallery,” she said. “We are thrilled to exhibit her personal work in that same space.”
The City Gallery is located in the Costick Center, at 28600 W. 11 Mile Rd. in Farmington Hills. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
