DEN­TON — The lo­cal artist whose work is cur­rently on dis­play in the Caro­line County com­mis­sion­ers’ meet­ing room was rec­og­nized dur­ing their meet­ing Tues­day, May 16.

Nancy Thomas, a Ridgely res­i­dent who moved to the county in 1994, con­trib­uted sev­eral oil and water­color paint­ings, fea­tur­ing ru­ral scenes from Tal­bot and Caro­line coun­ties and Delaware, which will be on dis­play in the meet­ing room in the Caro­line County Cir­cuit Court­house for the rest of the sec­ond quar­ter of the year.

Thomas be­gan study­ing art in the 1970s, first at the Tor­pedo Fac­tory in Alexan­dria, Va., and later at the Cor­co­ran School of Art in Wash­ing­ton, D.C.

She said when she moved to Caro­line County, she thought it was the flat­test place she had ever seen, but she grew to ap­pre­ci­ate the ter­rain, es­pe­cially the open skies.

The com­mis­sion­ers dis­play an art ex­hibit by a dif­fer­ent lo­cal artist or group of school art stu­dents ev­ery quar­ter.
