Norma Finger Giclée Prints
People smile when they look at a painting by Norma Finger and that’s just the way she would want it.
People smile when they look at a painting by Norma Finger. That’s just the way she wanted it. “A professor once told me,” Mrs. Finger recounted in an early interview, “that it’s not art if someone smiles when they look at it. But I don’t think there’s anything wrong with smiling when you look at a piece of art.”
Mrs. Finger, who passed away in 2010, lived the kind of life that allowed her to capture in oils and acrylics those small town moments of everyday tradition that warm hearts. A woman of family and community, she eschewed the fast-paced lifestyle available to an artist of her popularity in order to focus on her husband, four children, and a growing number of grandchildren. Born in Portsmouth, Ohio and trained at Ohio University and at the Cincinnati Art Academy, she lived in Florida, Oklahoma, and Colorado before settling in the little hamlet of Oxford, Kentucky, a locale rich with inspiration for the folk style that so suited Mrs. Finger.
