  • The Artists Gallery (in the Virginia Beach Art Center, located at 532 Virginia Beach Blvd.) My wall here changes frequently as paintings are sold.
  • D’Art Center (740 Boush St. in Norfolk). I have a wall display here as well as paintings for sale in their Online Gallery Shop. To get to the Online Gallery Shop, go to the D’Art Center website and look for the shopping bag.
  • Three of my paintings are regularly on display and for sale at The Main (Norfolk’s 4-star Hilton Hotel at 100 E. Main St.). This exhibit by D’Art artists is best seen in the daytime in the corridor to Selden Arcade and in an adjacent space in the hotel. Both are to the right of the front door and near the door to the garage.
MISCELLANEOUS EXHIBITS: For many, many years, I regularly displayed four paintings and numerous prints at The Gallery Shop (420 High St. in Portsmouth) but it is temporarily closed. I have also participated in many exhibits by the Chesapeake Bay Watercolor society, the Chesapeake Bay Art Association, the Virginia Watercolor Society, PrimePlus and several other organizations.


Because I have moved from a house to an apartment and could not take most of my paintings with me, I have SLASHED PRICES on 150 works. Please choose which paintings you would like to buy by clicking on the COMPLETE LIST OF PAINTINGS AND DRAWINGS or the AVAILABLE WORKS list under the rotating works on the first page of the Art Gallery. The Complete List is probably the most useful for choosing a work you want to buy (see the ones with prices), but the Available List may also be helpful. You can see photographs of all the paintings in my website Art Gallery. They are organized under the same headings and in the same order there as on the lists. You do not have to commit to buying until you have seen and approved of the actual work. You can buy on layaway the few more expensive ones. Paintings can be delivered anywhere in Hampton Roads. CONTACT ME: Email (nancybazin@yahoo.com) or TELEPHONE (757-535-3659).

This is a rare opportunity to purchase professional paintings at an affordable price -- either to keep or to give as gifts.
