  Nancy Calef is a multi-media artist whose paintings involve a socio-political narrative. While juxtaposing people in all manner of contemporary situations, Calef addresses challenging issues facing society ("Peoplescapes"). 

By breaking the plane of the canvas with sculpture and found objects, Nancy adds the 3rd dimension, bringing humor and depth of character to difficult subjects. Calef has also created a body of plein-air work as a result of studying the culture and landscape of the many countries she has visited.

“Brueghel meets the underground stylings of artists like Spain and S. Clay Wilson in the oil and mixed-media paintings of Nancy Calef, whose "peoplescapes" are on display at a cutting-edge North Beach gallery.”  SF Chronicle
