Nancy Grace Horton: Being 13

PRC Members' Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston

Nancy Grace Horton, UNH Hotel, from Being 13, 2009.

In this exhibition, Nancy Grace Horton explores her stepdaughter’s navigation through the often monumental year of being 13. With Zoe as her muse, Horton captures priceless moments in the world of a girl who is leaving a part of herself behind while learning to embrace who she is becoming-–Zoe expresses a variety of states peculiar to girls in their early teens: defiance, playfulness, embarrassment, youthfulness, boredom, and independence. Horton’s enchanting photographs clearly depict her subject’s blossoming sense of selfhood while also revealing the artist’s deep affection for and fascination with her subject.

Nancy Grace Horton holds an MFA in Visual Arts from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University and has been working as a freelance photographer and educator for over 20 years. She is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, most recently an Artists Entrepreneurial Grant from the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts, where she is also a Rostered Artist.

She lives between Maine and New Hampshire and takes yearly visits to rural Mexico where she creates photo-based cultural exchange projects for kids. As the featured artist for the Portsmouth, New Hampshire Library Artist Curated Book Display, she exhibited a hand made book entitled Mad Women, part of her newest series of work. She is known locally for her popular photo book Portsmouth.

In 2012 her photographs were featured in PRC in NYC at the New York Photo Festival and will also be included in the Griffin Museum of Photography’s 18th Juried Exhibition.

About Horton’s work The New York Times best-selling author Jodi Picoult comments, “My eye was drawn to Horton’s images immediately–-I found them evocative and haunting, as if each one held a story of its own.”

The PRC’s 2012 exhibition program is supported by a generous grant from the Lois and Richard England Family Foundation.
