Nancey B. Price is a self-taught analog collage artist, writer, and performance storyteller from Girard, GA. She received a BA in Women’s & Gender Studies from Mercer University and an MPA in Nonprofit Management from Georgia Southern University. Her childhood fascination with paper dolls inspired her to enter the world of collage art in 2016. In developing her work, Nancey explores how it feels to experience life in a Black body and what it looks like to exalt and celebrate that Blackness from the fields of rural America to the stars in the night sky, and everywhere in between.
Her art has granted her the opportunity to curate experiences that allow her audience to become immersed in her creative process. In 2019, she curated her debut solo exhibition, INVOCATIONS, in which she fused the art of storytelling with major themes in her visual art to recreate and celebrate her rural upbringing and the creativity that flourished from that. Furthermore, Nancey is a 2021 Dear Artists with Anxiety Resident, a virtual residency that allowed her to explore her relationship with anxiety and anger while creating and showcasing art that explores the complexities of being a Black woman in rural America.
Nancey’s work has been featured in various publications, notably O, the Oprah Magazine, Garden & Gun Magazine, Black Collagists: The Book, Connect Savannah, and Voyage ATL. She has exhibited at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, the Jepson Center at the Telfair Museum, Yale Divinity School, the University of Georgia, Savannah State University, and the Jackson Disdale Art Center at Hastings College.
