Arcadia, the title Nancy Petry chose for this exhibition, is a Greek term that refers to an ancient civilization in harmony with nature – the land, the animals, and every living thing – existing in a principled, peaceable and idyllic world. This optimistic philosophy, like everything about the artist’s work, speaks to what is joyful and what can be the best in us.

Petry has done it all – drawings, paintings, performance, happenings, dance, video, photography. This time she has given us a truly “feel good” moment at the onset of spring.   (Canadian Art)
