Battle of the Bowls, Artist Spotlight: Nancy Citrino and Lynn Denton

Nancy Citrino:

Nancy Citrino’s monotypes use pieces of fabric and simplistic shapes and patterns to create a human form. She portrays people and objects in their essentials, stripping them down to shape, attitude and gesture. Citrino received a B.S. in Art Education from Tyler School of Art, a certificate from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and a M.A. in Education from the University of the Arts. Citrino’s work has been exhibited in group and solo shows in Italy and Philadelphia at the Sketch Club; Tyler Art Gallery; University of the Arts, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and Fleisher Art Memorial, among others.


Lynn Denton:

Lynn Denton is a painter, installation and performance artist, ceramicist, and filmmaker who investigates the nature of creativity and its sources. In her installations at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia and the Morris Gallery of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, she explored the genesis of creativity in Western creation myths. In subsequent installations, performances and large-scale paintings, she has continued to identify and mine her personal icons and archetypal imagery, exhibiting in numerous solo shows at Nexus Gallery and other venues. She currently teaches at Moore College of Art and Design, serves on the Board of the Philadelphia Independent Film and Video Association, and shares leadership of the Philadelphia Artists’ Conference Network, a national organization for artists’ empowerment.
