A Richmond Art Museum instructor and her students will be featured at the Whitewater Valley Arts Association gallery.

Nancy Foureman and Students will open “Celebrating the Glories of the Fall Season” Friday from 6-8 p.m. at the association’s gallery, 402 Central Ave.

“I took a class from her some time ago and then run into her when I go to the RAM shows,” said Sharon McQueen, Arts Association president. 

In addition to teaching at RAM, she also teaches at sites in Ohio, Massachusetts, Texas, Montana and Wyoming and she has shown works all over the country. 

Most of the paintings are hers. Local students Patti Starr and Cheryl Johnson have works in the exhibit, as do other students.

“We’ve got portraits, landscapes, still life, so it’s a good mix of styles and mediums,” McQueen said.

Foureman studied at Miami University, Indiana State University and Edison State College in Ohio, but said on her website, “My husband, children and now grandchildren have been my best teachers.”

Spending much of her childhood traveling and moving extensively made her observant and aware of the surroundings, she said.

The exhibit will remain up through Nov. 1 when Kate Thurston will have a display of western photography.
