Partner: Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA)

Nancy Paredes is an artist working primarily in printmaking and photography currently based in The Bronx. Raised in Queens, NY by Honduran parents, her work reconstructs the memories of her mother’s village into images that universally represent nostalgia and home. By using photography as an image portal and printmaking as a means of manipulation, her images result in a realistic yet imaginary world, revealing the trace of a human hand. She received her BFA from The Cooper Union in 2015. In 2019, she was a recipient of the New Work Grant administered by the Queens Council on the Arts.

Her grant funded her first solo exhibition “Marbles in the Valley” at the Queens Botanical Garden. Nancy has participated as a ARTWorks Seminar Fellow at the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning, ChaNorth Artist Residency, VCCA’s Mt. San Angelo Artist Residency, and Shared Dialogue, Shared Space with Korea Art Forum. She is currently a Printmaking Technician at The Cooper Union and the Education Coordinator at EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop.
