Rancourt's depth and breadth as an artist spans multiple art forms. "A Creative Life" showcases Rancourt's artistic range and includes her artist's books, paintings in watercolor and acrylics, prints, sculpture, woven baskets, silk paintings and collages, decorated gourds and lamps.

"Making things — all kinds of things — has always been a daily practice. For me, making art is an act of conjure, of alchemy I only dimly understand, but know that I love and could not live happily without," said Rancourt.

"The MWVAA is honored to be hosting Jay's exhibit," said Jan Eskedal, President of the Board of Trustees for the MWVAA. "Her exhibit demonstrates not only the high quality of work our members produce, but their diversity as well."

In 1970, Rancourt learned to weave at the Penland School of Crafts and leapt into a 25-year career of creativity. In 1996 she became a librarian at the Cook Memorial Library in Tamworth, where she also teaches art classes in various media to all ages.
