Madison, WI 53704
We are proud to feature two very talented artists with two distinctive styles. Nancy Foss creates found object “creatures” from found objects while Don
Mendenhall captures life and emotion with his photography.
Don makes use of fine art photography with his work in human resource development, life coaching, art shows, and contemplative writings. He finds shadow and light, falling and failing; questions and answers, barriers and pathways, fear and courage are excellent themes for photography and the living of life.

Nancy has always enjoyed “outsider” art. She is a classically trained soprano and clinical social worker. She started making many assemblages from junk and then went on to experiment with combining old kitchen gadgets and vintage glass. Nancy feels her art is meant to celebrate the “child-like” being in each of us: to stimulate the imagination to see enchantment in the ordinary, to delight in common and often primitive parts of our own environments in a newly-realized way.
