Seabrook Artist is featured at Galveston Art League Gallery
Dori Nelson, the Galveston Art League Gallery’s Featured Artist for March, began expressing herself
through her art at a very young age. Today she views it as an essential part of her personal interactions:
“Art is my means of communicating the color I see in my world, my meditation, and my means of
connecting with people and with my spirit.”
She will offer 10 to 15 of her diverse works for sale at the front of the gallery, 2117A Postoffice St. in
Galveston, from noon to 6 p.m. Fridays-Sundays, Feb. 26 to March 28. Her artwork, along with dozens of
pieces by other Art League members, will also be shown and sold after Feb. 27 at
www.GalvestonArtLeague.com (click on “March Show” on the homepage).
Nelson, who grew up in Valley Stream, N.Y., and attended the Art Students League in New York City as a
teenager, earned a Bachelor of Science degree in art from Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.
Following a move to Texas with her husband and son, she completed a master’s degree in fine arts from
the University of Houston. She has taught art in public schools and worked in advertising.
When she lived in St. Croix in the Virgin Islands, she exhibited her work in galleries there; in addition, she
has shown in Cushing, Maine. Closer to her home in Seabrook, Nelson has displayed her watercolor
paintings and mixed-media art at the Lawndale Gallery in Houston and in Galveston venues, among
them the Galveston Art League Gallery.
The all-volunteer Art League, established in 1914, has a mission of promoting visual arts, art education,
and regional artists.
Nelson holds a professional-level membership in the Art League, which welcomes artists and non-artists
as members. Member benefits include reduced fees for entering monthly shows; invitation to member-
only preview parties of exhibits at the gallery; a subscription to a quarterly newsletter with information
about local art news, opportunities, and artists; and early notice of limited-enrollment workshops.
Members further enjoy the feel-good knowledge that they are supporting the local art community.
Tax-deductible membership fees are an important source of revenue for the Galveston Art League, a
nonprofit organization. The league also is supported by fees for shows and workshops, commissions on
gallery sales, tax-deductible contributions, and an annual fundraiser gala (the fall 2020 gala was delayed
and is now planned for May 23 in Galveston).
