Nancy South Reybold was born in 1936 and grew up happily in Hagerstown, MD, always drawing. From 1954-1958 she attended the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. where she majored first in Speech & Drama; then English; and then luckily she found her true home in their small Art Department studying art. She was taught and profoundly influenced by Kenneth Noland. She studied sculpture with Claire Fontanini and painting with Franciscan Fra Alexis Smith, and graduated in 1958 “cum laude” with a B.A. in Art. In 1959 Nancy married William U. Reybold III, moved to Talbot County, MD and began raising their family of six wonderful children. From 1976-1984 while living in Laurel, MD, Nancy studied watercolor with William B. (Skip) Lawrence. She also attended two of his summer workshops in Boothbay Harbor, ME.
In the late 1980's Nancy took studio space in Savage Mill, Savage, MD and began selling paintings. While there, she helped found the Foundry Street Gallery Co-op. She had two 2-person shows under their auspices and later, when it relocated to Owen Brown Shopping Center, she had two 1-person shows.
In 1989 the family moved to Easton, MD. Nancy took a studio at the Brookletts Building in town, where she continued to make art.
In 2011 Nancy helped found the Main Street Gallery Co-op in Cambridge, MD. She was an active member up until her death in December 2016.
