This painting, "The Dancers", has been awarded as one of 11 finalist in the Anerican Women's Artist Online Competition for 2013.
Art critic Brian Sherwin commented on artist Nancy Bass's paintings, stating, "I love how Nancy Bass has continued to explore a staple representational subject in a fresh, exciting way. The juxtaposition between traditional and contemporary is eye-catching, to say the least." Sherwin added, "Nancy has direct contact with the farm animals depicted in her paintings -- she knows the personality of her subjects... and it shows in her work. Her background -- and lifestyle --offers a unique 'jumping point' for the direction she is exploring with her art."
