“The Accidental Artist – Joy & Cohesion in Black Life” is presented by Goddard Riverside Community Arts.

The proceeds from works sold will jointly support the artist and Goddard Riverside’s Community Arts program, where we ensure the arts are accessible to all, regardless of income.

A lifelong New Yorker, the Bronx-native Nancy is a frequent presence in the streets of the Upper West Side, where she can be seen strolling with her leopard-print cane, fashionable shades and daring new hair color on her way to an event at Goddard Riverside’s Bernie Wohl Community Center, a multi-use afterschool location and arts space. One day last year, Nancy brought us a look-book containing awe-inspiring images of her “hidden” artworks that have been gradually filling the corners of every room of her apartment. Our arts staff was amazed. Now, and for the first time in her life, Nancy Brandon’s career retrospective solo exhibition will be on view at the Bernie Wohl Center beginning March 1st, 2024, as part of the annual W.H.A.M. Festival celebrating the female visionaries in our local arts scene throughout international Women’s Month.
