Nancy Hall Brooks is a painter and printmaker who lives and maintains a studio in Somerville, MA.  Her work connects personal stories and the wider spheres of politics, history and myth.  Brooks has a strong affinity for expressionist, narrative art forms.   Her paintings and prints are allegorical in an open-ended way, deriving their ultimate meaning from associations the viewer brings to the experience of looking.

Brooks studied art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and subsequently at the University of Arizona in Tucson where she received her  Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting and Drawing.  She has shown her work locally and nationally.  Her exhibitions include one-person shows at Bromfield gallery, Willoughby & Baltic Fine Arts, the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, and elsewhere.  Brooks has been awarded residencies at Blue Mountain Center and Dorland Mountain Arts Colony.  She is the recipient of several artist fellowship grants from the Somerville Arts Council.
