Artist Profile: Nell Curtis Tilton | New Orleans Homes and Lifestyles | by Ian McNulty | Fall 2011

"As an instructor in abstract painting at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts, local artist Nell Curtis Tilton advises her students to pay close attention to their surroundings. They’re not necessarily looking for scenes to portray, she reminds them, but for elements they might use on their canvases in less literal ways.

“You’re taking impressions and images and translating them in your own way through your painting,” Tilton says."


Nell C. Tilton | Artist Spotlight | Kim Hall | May 2012

"In her September 2011 show Blueprints: Reflections on Modern Design, at the Carol Robinson Gallery in New Orleans, artist Nell C. Tilton reflected on "being surrounded and influenced by the contemporary elements of modern architecture" throughout her life. Her father, who was an architect, had a strong influence on her approach to art. She quoted from his memoirs in her artist statement for the show: "The creative act is a lonely one. A dream occurs in your mind. A dream that seems real. You imagine how the building goes together in plan.  You see it in three dimensions in your imagination.  You walk around it and through it as if it were already there."


Summer color juried show includes artists from Tammany and around the country | The New Orleans Advocate | by Ted Lewis | July 2017

"All artists, it’s been said, must be prepared to suffer for their work.

But there’s nothing wrong with attaboys either. Especially ones like being selected for the St. Tammany Art Association’s 52nd Annual National Juried Artists Exhibition, better known as The Summer Show. 

The works of 34 artists from 15 states, selected from among 456 works submitted by 169 entrants, will go on display Friday at an opening reception at the association's Art House in Covington. Juror William Fagaly, curator emeritus for the New Orleans Museum of Art, will announce the winners..."

Those pieces range from photographs and paintings to an intricately carved fan by Bethany Wood of Iowa City, Iowa, and a detailed piece entitled "Cover Up" that features encaustic and oil on crocheted paper by Dallas-based artist Jane Cornish Smith. 

St. Tammany Parish artists selected for the exhibition are ... Their work will hang among those of other accepted artists from Louisiana, including Dianne Georgy of Kenner and Nell Tilton of Metairie, as well as New Orleans artists Aron Belka and Les Schmidt..."

Three Exhibitions | The New Orleans Art Review | by Judith Bonner | Oct/ Nov/ Dec 2009

"Nell Tilton’s has two large abstract paintings of Rivergate Vestiges on loan from the Carol Robinson Gallery. Both recall works by Ida Kohlmeyer in their overall geometric grid and loosely brushed paint with strategically placed highlights. Both works underscore the heedless destruction of the massive, solidly constructed Rivergate to replace it with a haphazardly designed gambling den that eschews the architectural heritage of the city."
