“Photographs The walls of my bedroom are covered With paintings from thrift shops And swap meets I recognize them like old friends And invite them in Mornings they are the first ones I see Rubbing sleep out of my eyes Sun describing poorly drawn faces and Skies all wrong No matter My kitchen has open shelves filled With colored glass cups and bowls A rubber toy head of Clark Kent Two clown cups from Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Collectable Cool Not so many photographs Maybe they aren’t so Still Silent Flat” - Peggy Nolan
Peggy Levison Nolan currently resides in Hollywood, Florida. Nolan attended Syracuse University during the 1960s and completed her BFA at Florida International University in 1990 and her MFA in 2001. Nolan’s photographs are personal, and yet they tap into our collective nostalgia of family, young love, and boundless joy while recording a family’s resiliency amidst economic and social challenges. Nolan had her first solo exhibition, “Blueprint for a Good Life,” at the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum in 2021.
