NELL’S PAINTINGS

The Artist - Nell Posmer

The Artist - Nell Posmer

Co-Founder of Blue Diamond Athletic Displays with her husband Ken Posmer

Downers G rove resident, Nell Posmer was introduced to drawing by her mother at young age. At age of 12, her very first painting won the first place in one of the Art Competitions in the Island of Sri-Lanka. That was it! She fell in love with it ever since.
Mostly self-taught with some training under a renowned artist Adam Belt (His work is at the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego) with his help, Nell was able to find her way through the canvas.
Her painting style is free from restrictions. She tends to mix different types of painting technique to achieve what she hopes to accomplish.
Nell was selected to be the official artist for the Chicago inaugural Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon in 2009. She has also been chosen in 2010 as the official artist to create a painting to raise funds for the Chicago Cancer Society.
Nell worked from her Art Gallery in Elmhurst in the past, now she will be displaying her artwork at www.athleticdisplays.com Please visit page “Paintings by Nell” for more info.
You will find her during summer months, painting away in the garage with her two kids along with other neighborhood kids for fun.
During upcoming “Meet the Artist” event, she will speak about her painting style and how she picks her subject matter in depth. Please stop by on Sep. 17th between 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. by the North Gallery for this event.

From this exhibition, 50% of the proceeds will be donated to Chicago – “Project Education Plus” Program that was started by an amazing humanitarian, Coach Vince Carter. Please visit: https://projecteducationplus.org/ for more info. Any help is greatly appreciated.
