Anne Vaughan, Sole City and turning 60
Posted by artinsmallplaces
I turned 60 today. I am not where I planned to be but in many ways, though where I am didn’t exist when I made those plans.
I never planned to be the Show Coordinator for an art association. And, this is a fun gig.
I also never planned to have other people’s work at my house prior to a show. Damn. I always want to buy it!!
Anne Vaughan entrusted two of her pieces with me for our next show-here’s “Rose Window”. Anne’s work has the energy that beats most modern painters. This grandmother, a retired lawyer, and ex-museum docent, has a powerful, confident mark. Influenced by Delaunay, and the second wave of European Impressionists, she is highly adept at florals, landscapes and abstracts. Her most recent work delves into the socio-political with portraits of abused women, war victims, racially-triggered violence, etc.
I met Anne at the Red Saturday (BAA) event last year. She worked on a piece, and set it down to dry. A child subsequently stepped on it, and for her, a “no big deal”. She also sold a piece out of the parking lot later.
She will have this and another piece at Sole City this month. This group show will consist of work of mine, Anne Vaughan, Ruth Ann Bleau, Bill Moore, Beth Wittenberg, Christy Bruna, Erika Carty, Jim Munro and others. I will be hanging this show and pulling my own tomorrow afternoon.
