Anne Rose seeks to convey the essence of the person within her paintings. Using color and her excellent draftsmen skills, she recreates, imagines, and captures the secret quality that lives within her subjects. She develops each painting as a whole, working expressively, and her finished work is poetic and poignant.
A selection of her paintings of Nantucket can be seen this week in Robert Foster Fine Art, a gallery at 8 India Street, beginning with an opening reception on Friday, September 5 from 6 to 9 pm. The exhibit will continue to September 17.
Anne has studied at the School of Visual Arts, The Art Students League, The National Academy of Design in Manhattan and Pratt in Venice. In 1999 she received her three-year Certificate in Painting from the National Academy of Design. Over the years she has won numerous awards and has shown solo at The Artists’ Association of Nantucket and participated in many group exhibits at the National Academy of Design Museum, The Cork Gallery in the Lincoln Center, The National Arts Club, and the Audubon Society Annual Exhibition at the Salmagundi Club, New York.
Also opening this Friday, September 5, with a festive reception from 6 to 8 pm, is an exhibition of work by island photographers in the Gallery at Four India, upstairs at 4 India Street. The five photographers showing in this gallery are Lauri Robertson, Terry Pommett, Ted Merriam, Michele LeMaitre, and Catie Soldan. The work will include stunning island scenes, exquisite portraits and landscapes, and evocative impressionistic work. Some of the featured photographers have years of experience in the field; others have more newly discovered talents. The photography exhibition will continue through September 30.
