This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A well-known printmaker, she worked in a variety of mediums.  Her wildlife etchings won her several awards.

Nancy Nemec was a Warner New Hampshire resident on-and-off from 1942 to her death in 2003.  She produced a great deal of her work at her "Kearsarge Studio."  She was also a contributing editor for the Concord Monitor from 1990-1991, and taught art classes.

Born Nancy Lewis on November 30, 1923 in North Carolina, she was the daughter of Tracy Hammond & Esther (Tufts) Lewis.  Her mother Esther hailed from both the Sise and Lyman families who very early settled in Portsmouth NH.  She graduated from Vesper George School of Art in Boston MA.  She married and later divorced Boyce Nemec, and had three children. 

Her work is exhibited and collected internationally.  She received many awards including Medals of Honor from Audubon Artists, the National Association of Women Artists at the National Academy of Design Galleries, several at Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts Exhibitions, Jubilee Print Prize at Newport, and numerous others.  She had over sixty one-person shows from coast to coast, and is represented in private and public collections such as the Library of Congress, New York Public Library, Philadelphia Free Library, New Britain Museum of American Art, Springfield Museum of Fine Art, Norfolk Museum, and Georgia Museum of Art.

She is mentioned in Who's Who of American Women, 1961; Contemporary Graphic Artists, Who's Who in American Art, 1973-2000; Who's Who in the East 1990, and others.

She was an active member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, and the New Hampshire Art Association.  She was also active in community work in Warner NH.  The League of New Hampshire Craftsmen honored her work and her teaching in an exhibit, "The Mentor Collection," in 2000.  On 29 September 1978 the Concord Monitor presented a feature article about Nancy Nemec.

Nancy Nemec died February 1, 2003 and her last recorded residence was Arlington, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.
