Maryland Artist, Nan Fuhrman, has been painting since 1992. Years after receiving her MBA in International Business, she decided to study art, something she always had wanted to do. She studied at the Yellow Barn Studio and Gallery in Glen Echo, Maryland under the nationally-reknowned artist Walter Bartman as well as Bartman's son, W. Michael Bartman III, and other Studio Instructors, Lida Stiefel and Eric Butters.
Although Nan is an MBA, she now devotes her time to painting--in her own studio, at the Yellow Barn Studio and on location (en plein air). She primarily paints in Montgomery County, Maryland as well as in New England. She has attended plein air workshops in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Tilghman's Island, Maryland and in the south of France.
Nan lived in Haiti in the mid-1970s. She imported and sold art from the country through her gallery, The Caribbean Collection. She is a member of the Montgomery Plein Air Artists and the Gaithersburg Fine Arts Association.
Nan's work is in many private collections. She has exhibited at the Yellow Barn Gallery in Glen Echo, Maryland in various group and individual shows. She is currently exhibiting in a juried, 3-artist show in Gaithersburg, Maryland through the Gaithersburg Arts Barn (see the News and Events page).
