Nancy Gilbert Showcases American and New Zealand Iconic Images

Nancy Gilbert explains the history of the Art in Embassies Program with Audrey Flack’s Sojourner Truth in the background.

Last week Nancy Gilbert hosted the Et Alia Art Group at Camperdown for a luncheon to share and discuss the Art in Embassies ‘Iconic Images’ exhibition. Nancy gave a history of the Art in Embassies program and the process behind their theme of iconic images of her home and host countries. She shared her favorite pieces with the group and talked about how art communicates American values and culture. Guests exchanged thoughts about up and coming contemporary artists and had the opportunity to browse the exhibition. The Art in Embassies exhibition will remain at Camperdown for the duration of Ambassador Mark Gilbert and Nancy Gilbert’s tenure. You can browse the ‘Iconic Images‘ exhibition virtually here.
