Nancy Good

Owner - Core Contemporary

Known for her large-format conceptual abstracts, colorful murals, photographic composites, and analog-to-digital (aka “A2D”) visual works, Nancy Good is a full-time, Las Vegas-based artist. Strongly influenced by a sensory condition known as synesthesia, fascination with the intersection of art and science, and her eclectic DNA revealing connections with cultures the world over - as well as travels to Australia, Africa, Vietnam and childhood residency in Japan – Good weaves the use of materials and tools of modern times while also honoring the mark-making of ancient ancestries to interpret humanity's move into greater understanding of our world and society.

Good’s multi-disciplinary work is seen in exhibits across the country and abroad in high profile locations such as SaveArtSpace (a billboard-sized rendering of her work “The Critical Mass of Collective Memory” presently on public display in Las Vegas), the San Diego Art Museum Artist's Guild's Summer Exhibition, Meow Wolf/Omega Mart (she was commissioned to create an immersive art experience), MGM (public art along the Las Vegas Strip), Reno-Tahoe International Airport, Las Vegas City Hall, Delano Hotel, Winchester Cultural Center, Donna Beam Gallery, Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art, HERE Arts in NYC, Nashville International Airport, Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau, Bridgestone Arena, Contemporary Arts Center in Las Vegas, Life is Beautiful and galleries in the Southeast, New York, Montana, Nevada and California. Her artistic contributions have also been honored with four Congressional Commendations and her work is found in important private collections throughout the U.S. and overseas through sales, gifts and charitable donations.
